Iraqi kids: Can you believe a ten-fold increase?

By Cindy Fogleman | Staff Advisor

Our converted first Hope Bus!
Our converted first Hope Bus!

In 2017, 50 boys and girls - most of them desperately poor orphans and street kids - came to our very first "Hope Bus."   The eyecatching, colorful classroom on wheels was an immediate hit and the children loved it!   They were tutored in reading, writing, math and other subjects.  And they were fed nutritious meals, provided hygiene supplies and psychosocial services, and enjoyed the childhood fun of play and arts and crafts. 

Fast forward 5 years, and guess what?  As of September 2022, the number of boys and girls served full- or part-time by this fleet of Hope Buses - now numbering three - has increased more than ten-fold to a total of 625!  In the desperately poor neighborhood of Baghdad (pictured below), these Hope Buses are like water in the desert for children thirsty to learn and play and be loved.  There is nothing quite like it.  It is changing little lives, one by one.  All because of YOU and others like you! 

Now the baton for the Hope Bus Scholarship fund passes to a large donor.  

Want to do more?  Please give on November 29 - "GIVING TUESDAY" -  to our beloved Iraqi children.  On that day, Iraqi kids compete with other charities to capture thousands of dollars in FREE funds!  The more donors give, the more free funds the Iraqi Children Foundation earns to provide legal protection, nutrition, education, and psychosocial services for Iraq's most vulnerable orphans, street kids, child laborers, trafficking victims, and more.  NEW monthly donors of $10 - $200 that day will also get a 100%+ match on one month.  Too good to pass up! 

Again, our heartfelt thanks to you for being on the team for Iraqi children!  Please remember them on November 29 - Giving Tuesday.  We are so grateful for you!

All the best,
Cindy
