Please note: Donations made toward IRUSA’s Iraq fund may be used to support important emergency or long-term work across the country, or for Iraq refugees in other countries.
WINTER IS HERE
Iraqis are currently experiencing the worst of winter, and this year it has stuck with torrential flooding. Thousands are displaced from villages, and death and disease is increasing. Donors like you help families in need when it matters most.
Sharing your warmth helps get them through the winter. When you donate now, your aid ensures they’re prepared to make it through all the frigid temperatures to come. IRUSA uses donations to provide food, medical aid, water, blankets, mattresses, plastic sheeting, plastic mats, shoes, jackets, hats, sweatshirts, gloves, waterproof coats, socks, and more.
A Legacy of Service and Hope
Decades of political instability have affected Iraq’s economy, infrastructure, employment and social programs. Important strides have been made in improving socio-economic issues and reducing food insecurity in recent years.
The situation for many people deteriorated sharply in 2014. The United Nations reported more than 12,000 people killed and 23,000 injured that year—the highest number of casualties since the violence of 2006-2007. Close to 3 million people are now displaced from their homes inside Iraq, according to the United Nations, and more than 4 million are in need of humanitarian aid.
As IRUSA celebrates its 25th anniversary, we are proud of the work we have done in Iraq with the help of countless donors. Read more about our legacy in the Middle East.
