Orphaned Family with Sick Child in Grave Need of Support!

Yousef Mishtak, age 7, was orphaned when he was just a few months old after losing his beloved father to a heart attack.  He attends school but suffers from a sensitive ailment impacting one of his organs (out of respect for this dear child, we are not detailing the illness), affecting his ability to concentrate on his schoolwork.  Yousef has three older siblings who unfortunately are not able to attend school due to financial constraints.  These children live in a rental home under the care of their mother who has a middle school level education.  Imagine the grief of a family already devastated by the loss of their sole provider, coupled with the inability to get an education in hopes of one day being able to improve the conditions of the family.  Yousef and his family need immediate assistance to provide relief to a grief-stricken and hungry family!

Muammal Mishtak, age 11, was orphaned at the tender age of 4 after losing her beloved father to a heart attack.  Muammal has three siblings; she has a younger brother who was just a baby when their father passed away and two older siblings.  Muammal and her two older siblings unfortunately are not able to attend school due to financial constraints.  These children live in a rental home under the care of their mother who has a middle school level education.  Imagine the grief of a family already devastated by the loss of their sole provider, coupled with the inability to get an education in hopes of one day being able to improve the conditions of the family.  Muammal and her family need immediate assistance to provide relief to a grief-stricken and hungry family!

Fatima Mishtak, age 15, was orphaned at the young age of 8 after losing her beloved father to a heart attack.  Fatima has three siblings; she has a younger brother who was just a baby when their father passed away, a younger sister, and an older brother.  She and her sister and older brother unfortunately are not able to attend school due to financial constraints.  These children live in a rental home under the care of their mother who has a middle school level education.  Imagine the grief of a family already devastated by the loss of their sole provider, coupled with the inability to get an education in hopes of one day being able to improve the conditions of the family.  Fatima and her family need immediate assistance to provide relief to a grief-stricken and hungry family!

Ali Mishtak, age 18, was orphaned at the sensitive age of 11 after losing his beloved father to a heart attack.  Ali has three younger siblings; he has a younger brother who was just a baby when their father passed away, and two younger sisters.  Ali and his two sisters unfortunately are not able to attend school due to financial constraints.  Ali is working full time trying to support his family.  These children live in a rental home under the care of their mother who has a middle school level education.  Imagine the grief of a family already devastated by the loss of their sole provider, coupled with the inability to get an education in hopes of one day being able to improve the conditions of the family.  Ali and his family need immediate assistance to provide relief to a grief-stricken and hungry family!

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.
