Four Orphans and Their Young Widowed Mother Need Basic Necessities!

Mahdi Jawad, age 6, became orphaned at the sweet and innocent age of 4.  He doesn’t remember much about his father, except that he would wait at the door for him to return from work.  Mahdi and his three older siblings will never be able to take family trips with their father, nor will they be able to enjoy a family dinner with him.  Left in the care of their mother who has a middle school level education, the family is in dire need of necessities including food and clothing, and basic kitchen appliances including a refrigerator.  The family does not currently receive any financial assistance.  Please be the beacon of hope this family so desperately needs!

Zahraa Jawad, age 9, became orphaned at the young age of 7.  She is slowly beginning to forget the loving memories of times spent with her beloved father.  Zahraa and her three siblings will never be able to take family trips with their father, nor will they be able to enjoy a family dinner with him.  Left in the care of their mother who has a middle school level education, the family is in dire need of necessities including food and clothing, and basic kitchen appliances including a refrigerator.  The family does not currently receive any financial assistance.  Please be the beacon of hope this family so desperately needs!

Mohamad Jawad, age 10, became orphaned at the young age of 8.  The eldest brother of the family, he is forced to mature into early adulthood bearing the void of his father upon his shoulders.  He attends school, but for most young boys in his situation, he may soon be forced to quit school to provide for his family.  Mohamad and his three siblings will never be able to take family trips with their father, nor will they be able to enjoy a family dinner with him.  Left in the care of their mother who has a middle school level education, the family is in dire need of necessities including food and clothing, and basic kitchen appliances including a refrigerator.  The family does not currently receive any financial assistance.  Please be the beacon of hope this family so desperately needs!

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.
