Last week as we celebrated Thanksgiving, we told you about the brave men and women who help carry out our work on-the-ground in Iraq. These volunteers risk their lives to bring aid and comfort to innocent children and families displaced by violence. They are doing so right now in Tikrit – and we need to provide them with more support.
Tikrit was liberated from ISIS in 2015 – but as the militants retreated, they looted the city’s hospitals and clinics leaving medical professionals unable to care for the sick and wounded. Since that time, 12,000 new families have arrived, fleeing from violence in Mosul, Qayyarah, and other areas north and west of the city.
To meet the needs of these vulnerable families, Soccer Salam partners have established a clinic that treated nearly 100 children and their family members in its first day of operation. Today we need your help to keep it open and going strong.
We are more than 95% of the way to our goal of raising $25,000 for Soccer Salam – that’s less than $1,000 away. On this #GivingTuesday, won’t you contribute whatever amount you can so that we can meet – and beat – this goal? Will you do this for Iraq?
