Iraq Appeal

In the past few weeks, violence has been spreading across Iraq, resulting in an urgent humanitarian crisis. We are deeply concerned by the reports of indiscriminate and extrajudicial killings. Minorities in Iraq, including Christians, are particularly vulnerable as sectarian tensions increase. Over 1 million civilians, mostly women and children, have been forced to flee their homes. Most have fled with nothing and urgently need help now.

Through our partner on the ground, Act for Peace is responding fast to the crisis by providing food parcels, hygiene kits, blankets and cooking sets, but we urgently need more funds to scale up our response. 

Two camps are being established in Erbil and Dohuk to provide much needed shelter to displaced families. But the demand is great and many people are currently living in schools, mosques, tents, abandoned buildings and open public spaces. Terrified and homeless, families are exposed to searing heat, often without anything to eat or drink. 

Please give generously to support displaced families today.
