 23.5 million people in Iraq and Syria are in need of humanitarian help

Please contribute £5 per shopping bag or £10 per bin liner towards the costs of transporting your donations to the Middle East.  It costs around £6,500 to send each lorry to Iraq.  You can donate through our giving page.

Last winter, babies, children and vulnerable adults died in camps in the Middle East because there wasn’t enough aid to keep them warm.  The WHO estimates that 25,000 people are injured every month in the conflict in Syria while 58% hospitals have closed or are functioning at a reduced capacity.  We are also sending medical aid - read more here.
