About Melek:

اقرا تفاصيل عن الطفل - عربي

In the heart of a struggling neighborhood, lives little Melek, a 3-year-old girl with eyes full of dreams, born into a world that challenged her form her first breath in 2021. Tragedy had struck Melek’s family in 2023 when her father, the pillar of their small family, tragically collapsed and passed away in a heart-wrenching work incident. Now, Melek, alongside her siblings Ali and Sharifa, navigate a life shadowed by loss under the care of their courageous mother.

Their home, a rented shelter barely standing, mirrors the fragility of their situation. Within its dilapidated walls, the absence of basic comforts is a daily reminder of their place below the poverty line. Melek’s mother faces the monumental task of raising 3 young children single-handedly. With no income or assistance whatsoever, each day is a testament to her unwavering strength.

Amid these trials, Melek’s mother harbors a flicker of hope. She is currently studying, fueled by the dream of completing her studies abroad. This isn’t just for her but for Melek, Ali, and Sharifa. She envisions a future where she can lift her family out of despair and provide them with the life they deserve. Your compassion can light the way for Melek and her siblings, guiding them towards a life filled with the possibilities their father wished for them.

Melek would greatly benefit from a generous sponsor, like you!

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.
