Aid for displaced families

Aren't these smiles contagious?!

This aid was distributed to displaced families sheltering Eatieteh village, Duhok in Iraq at the end of July. We distributed clothes, shoes, sandals, bedding, baby baskets, walking sticks, and women's hygiene products to 230 displaced Christian, Muslim & Yazidi families who fled from the Ba'asheeqa area.

These families are extremely poor having fled their homes and everything they worked for. They now struggle to find employment and make ends meet. Our aid is restoring a glimmer of hope in their lives which have been turned upside down by conflict. We rely on people like you to collect aid and fundraise in your communities to make this possible.

Every winter, babies, children and vulnerable adults die of hypothermia in camps, unfinished buildings and informal settlements. We need more volunteers to collect winter aid this Autumn through their churches, schools, workplaces and communities.

Can you help us to redistribute some of the excess we have here in the UK to people who are in desperate need?
