For nearly three decades, IRUSA has focused on eliminating poverty in the Middle East and continues to make a difference in the region, responding to both humanitarian crises and long-term needs.
Despite decades of political instability, violence, and the current pandemic, our work has successfully provided those in need with access to basic essentials including healthcare; water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) projects; education; livelihood support; and more.
We are currently working across Jordan, Lebanon, Palestine, Syria, Tunisia, Turkey, and Yemen. Syria and Yemen are both considered emergency zones.
With the support of our donors, IRUSA brings hope and dignity to families in the Middle East and helps support the futures of our sisters and brothers in need.
Focus on the Middle East, donate today, and support our programs that change the lives of our brothers and sisters around the world.
Women are often the most affected by crises around the world, being forced to take on roles and responsibilities that they never imagined. In the Middle East, prolonged conflict and natural disasters have destroyed the communities and economies that once thrived. Now millions are displaced from what was once “home” becoming refugees. Many women have lost husbands and children. They are thrown into the chaos, not knowing what will happen next in their life. For many women, earning a livelihood has now become a need. And for many girls, going to school has become a wish.
By implementing many programs, such as emergency food projects, water system development, and livelihood training for vulnerable women, IRUSA is helping the Middle East to keep moving forward. And right now, in emergency zones like Syria and Yemen, the dedication of donors is providing urgent medical aid, food supplies, shelter and more to those in need. It’s only through your compassion and your continued support that our brothers and sisters throughout the region know that they are not alone.
A vision for a better world must include a better life for our sisters and brothers in need across the Middle East. Thank you for being there for them during their most difficult times, and for continuing to work with us to make this vision a reality.
