Family of Four Young Orphaned Children Cries for Relief!

Maryam Hamid, age 9, is the third eldest of her three siblings, sadly orphaned last year after losing her father to COVID-19. Zahraa needs support to continue attending school. Soon she will forget the scent of her father, as she matures in her childhood without him. Her family receives no regular income. Her illiterate mother would love the opportunity to learn a skill like seamstressing. Their family desperately needs a home AC unit to help cope with the hot Iraq summers, as well as food and clothes for the children. Please help relieve some of Maryam’s suffering with your sponsorship!

Haider Hamid, age 10, is the second eldest of his three siblings, sadly orphaned last year after losing his father to COVID-19. He and his older brothers will not grow up learning to shave or play soccer with their father. His family receives no regular income. His illiterate mother is a very good mother that cares a lot for her children and takes care of them as much as she can. Their family desperately needs a home AC unit to help cope with the hot Iraq summers as well as food and clothes for the children. Please help relieve some of Haider’s suffering with your sponsorship!

Abbas Hamid, age 1, is the youngest of his three siblings, sadly orphaned last year after losing his father to COVID-19. He will grow up not knowing his father, and what he looks like. His family receives no regular income. His illiterate mother is a very good mother who cares a lot for her children and takes care of them as much as she can. Their family desperately needs a home AC unit to help cope with the hot Iraq summers, as well as food and clothes for the children. Please help relieve some of Abbas’s suffering with your sponsorship!

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 info@ichope.org, 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.
