Signs of hope - Thanks your donations!

Dear donors,

Do you know Rawa Khadi?

Her husband's family owned a sweets factory in Mosul/Irac. In June 2014, they had to flee from Mosul. With us, the 28-year-old completed an apprenticeship as a pastry chef and got an oven. She advertised her baked goods, actively approached people and started her own business with a small business. The business is doing well. The family was able to move from a barrack to a small house.

This is only one example of self generating income  we support. We often find that people do not need much to be able to stand on their own two feet again.

But we also note that tensions between host communities and refugees and internally displaced persons are increasing. There are few jobs, social services are overburdened and basic services are not enough for everyone. In addition, Northern Iraq is struggling with an economic crisis due to oil price collapse and disputes with the central government in Baghdad. Many officials have not paid salaries for months.

A return of the refugees is not in sight. The humanitarian situation is worsening daily and about 8.6 million people depend on basic, life-saving assistance. The situation shows how necessary our projects are.

So we are urgently depended on donations to continue our helping activities

We support needy people with food and hygiene vouchers. With these people can do self-determined buyings and they decide what they need. In addition, we closely monitor the developments in Iraq, so that we can be prepared to provide timely assistance in the event of further displacement.

It would be great if you follow our mission to bring Syrian refugees relief in their difficult situation.
