Chechnya - Islamic Relief USA

A Country of Survivors, But the Need is Still Strong

Two wars tore through Chechnya during the 1990s and into the following decade, destroying the region’s economy, job market, and civil infrastructure. Since 2000, the economic situation in Chechnya has improved considerably, but humanitarian aid is still vital.

Areas of need in Chechnya:

  • 50% of Chechens live in poverty. (UNICEF, 2017)
  • 200,000 people across the country are internally displaced. (UNICEF, 2017)

Islamic Relief’s Dedication to Chechnya

Islamic Relief was one of the first humanitarian entities to assist Chechens in the wakes of their devastating conflicts. Recently, IRUSA has placed incredible emphasis on providing aid to Chechnya’s orphans and children in need, along with their families. In addition to these projects, IRUSA has also provided Chechen’s with winter relief.

Here’s just a sampling of recent efforts for families in need across Chechnya:

  • Supporting orphans in need and their families
  • Delivering urgent food aid to those living in hunger
  • Providing emergency supplies to help families brace against harsh weather

We Need YOUR Help

As much as we’ve been able to accomplish, there is still so much more to do. If we work together—with YOU—we can make the vision of a better Chechnya a reality for so many more of our sisters and brothers in need.

$1,000 can help build innovative water and sanitation facilities
$250 can distribute life-saving medical aid to those suffering from disease
$50 can provide vital food packages to families suffering from starvation

PLEASE NOTE: Donations made to IRUSA’s Chechnya fund may serve urgent or long-term programs in Chechnya or for Chechan refugees in other countries.
