Rokaia Falah is 9 years old.  Sadly, she became orphaned at the young age of 7 – young enough not to understand the true impact of such a loss, yet old enough to feel the excruciating void of a father – after losing her father to heart failure. Rokaia and her five siblings are in dire need of support, beginning with food, housing, and clothing.

Rokaia’s sisters (Fatima) 16 years old, and (Zahra) 18 years old.  They became orphaned at the age of 14, and 16 after losing their father to heart failure.  Fatima and Zahra will never be walked down the aisle by their father at their wedding, nor will they be able to see his proud face as they blossom into a young lady. Rather, they are left to endure his loss and help their mother care for their siblings. Rokaia’s youngest sister.

Hussein is the older brother to Rokaia (13 years old).  He became orphaned at the age of 11.  He will never play soccer with his father, nor learn to shave his beard.  Rather, he will endure a childhood of sadness and tragedy, as he and his five siblings remain in dire need of support, beginning with food, housing, and clothing.

Qatar al Nada is 4 years old. She will never remember her father’s smile, his laugh, or his love for her, as she was too young to recall memories of his life!!

Please sponsor Rokaia or one of her five siblings to provide relief for this family who has endured horrific loss.

I.C. 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 benefitting 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 we prioritize the well-being and safety of our orphans. Thus sensitive information such as home address may be withheld.
