About Maher:

اقرا تفاصيل عن الطفل - عربي

At just 13 years old, Maher Jawad and his sister Jannat, 15, face the stark reality of life without their father, who passed away from heart failure. With no food at home and no income, they confront daily challenges far beyond their years. Orphaned at eight, Maher’s resilience is tested daily, as they both strive to find hope amidst the loss.

Your support can offer Maher and Jannat the basic necessities they so desperately need, providing a beacon of hope in their darkest hours.

Sponsoring them means more than just food; it’s a gesture of solidarity, offering them a chance to look forward to brighter days.

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.
