About Roqaia:

اقرا تفاصيل عن الطفل - عربي

Roqaia is a 12 year old girl, born in 2011, who is currently enrolled in fourth grade in primary school and her academic performance is fair. She has 3 other siblings (1 sister and 2 brothers), who live with their mother after the father had passed away in 2020 due to electrocution. Roqaia’s mother has been running into difficulties raising her children, especially since she states that she doesn’t have any skills and no education (illiterate). The family is in need of basic necessities such as a split cooler, and a refrigerator. The house is also in need of some repairs. The family does not receive any sort of government-funded income and are in need of an income to amend their worsening financial crisis and help Roqaia’s mom raise her children. Roqaia, along with her siblings, are at school and the 4 of them being in school has added extra strain to the mother with her ability to keep them in school, especially with the support that they need as students in order to keep them at school.

Roqaia 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.
