  • Need


    8 years on and there are 5.4million children orphaned, 1.8million women widowed, over 1 million people killed, 4.8million people displaced and with 65% of the population unemployed. We are trying to help these people especially orphans and widows in all ways possible, our sponsorship programes provide them will all life essentials.


    Help the Needy will provide each orphan with primary health care, education, literacy, food and water. Through this campaign and through other school and public events we are trying to sponsor more than 50 orphans as there are 5 million orphans in Iraq.
    This project will grant 50 of the most orphans in need and support them in all ways possible.

    What success will look like

    Success will be to raise awareness about the situation of these orphans in Iraq and trying to get as many of them sponsored

  • Impact


    The sponsorship projects will have a great impact on every orphan's life, from nutrition, to education, to health. It'll give them the opportunity to live their dreams and ignite their lives with happiness and laughter. Everyone deserves a chance at life and we are here trying to grant those in need with your support.
    The sponsorships will help widows gain employment, and become independent in their work so that they may provide for their families and live a normal life.


    The one risk is that the 50 orphans may not all be sponsored on time sacraficing the ones already sponsored.
