Years of war and the invasion of ISIS have torn through the fabric of family life in Iraq: loved ones have been lost, homes destroyed, communities ripped apart.

One of the most devastating effects has been the vast numbers of children left without parents.

AMAR has been delivering medical and educational support to these orphans and families, but we need your help to continue.

Share this appeal

This Christmas families all over the world will come together to share in the warmth, pleasure and love surrounding the festivities. Together under one roof, they’ll celebrate, enjoy hearty meals, exchange gifts.

But for many in Iraq there can be no such celebration. Their lives have been devastated by conflict and persecution. Almost 2 million remain displaced.

One of the most devastating consequences has been the vast numbers of children left without parents. They have been left traumatised and unprotected, and risk becoming forgotten casualties of the war.

AMAR has been delivering urgent medical and educational support in the Middle East for the past 26 years. Over that time, it has treated more than 10m patients and opened 46 medical centres across Iraq.

It currently cares for around 100,000 displaced people in the camps of northern Iraq. It has also recently built and opened a school for orphans in the south.

But we need to do more. This Christmas, please help us continue to reach out to children and families in desperate need.

Help us let them know that, after such cruelty and horror, they are not alone.
