Urgent : Fire Appeal

Urgent Fire Appeal following a disastrous fire in Shariya camp, Kurdistan, Northern Iraq:

In the heat of the day on Friday 4 June a fire took hold in the Shariya camp, near Duhok, Kurdistan, Northern Iraq.

  • Approximately 400 tents were burned to the ground
  • 250 families (approximately 1,000 people) are now homeless
  • All their meagre belongings from the last 7 years in the camp are now gone

Please help to assist us to get these families get back on their feet, a roof over their heads and replace essential items. It is summer and the temperatures are in the mid 40’s – there is no shade – they need water and food.

All funds raised will be transferred to NGO Springs of Hope Foundation Ltd who work in the Shariya camp. We recently partnered with Springs of Hope in their Garden of Hope project on land adjacent to their centre.

Springs of Hope staff are buying items, putting together essential packs, cooking and feeding over 100 people, providing a safe place for the children to do some activities in the shade of their centre in the camp.

Donate to support the refugees who have lost everything.
