About Abbas:

اقرا تفاصيل عن الطفل - عربي

Abbas Samir (born 2013), losing his father the very year he entered the world, navigates life’s trials alongside his siblings, Roukaya (2011), Abdallah (2007), and Ali (2005), under the shadow of their father’s passing due to heart failure. With two siblings unable to continue their education due to financial strains, the family’s resilience is put to the test daily. Their mother, striving to make ends meet through her home-based bread-making business, faces the overwhelming challenge of repairing their dilapidated home while striving to provide for her children.

Ali, at 16, made the tough decision to leave school, taking on the responsibility to support the family, a choice that reflects the depth of their hardship.

Your sponsorship for Abbas or any of his siblings can offer a beacon of hope, easing the burden of this family’s struggle with heartache and financial hardship. It’s a chance to restore their access to education and secure a stable, nourishing environment for them to grow and thrive in.

Iraqi Children’s Hope implements a strict and rigorous fund allocation system whereby funding is paid to the orphan guardian with proof of funds spent (receipts from grocery/food markets, clothing retailers, furniture/appliance retailers, home rent, etc.) validated by ongoing social service visits to confirm appropriate purchases. Due to our on-site team and volunteers, every family is regularly visited to ensure funds are directly supporting our beloved orphans. Our team in Washington D.C. (USA) regularly visits Iraq to ensure this operation and also to witness the beaming faces of the orphaned children receiving a new pair of glasses when they could not see the chalkboard, or a new pair of shoes because their feet were bleeding from inadequate shoes, or a family benefiting from a new bed who no longer have to sleep on concrete ground, etc.
If an orphan sponsor would like regular progress updates or correspondence with a beloved orphan, please do not hesitate to contact our team at, and appropriate arrangements will be made. Please note that we prioritize the well-being and safety of our orphans. Thus, sensitive information, such as a home address, may be withheld.
