Spread the Warmth
The winter in Iraq can be pretty severe; with temperatures dropping as low as 2°C, the southern desert region can be pretty frosty.Every winter, thousands of vulnerable children and elders are at risk of the flu, pneumonia, and sadly, many times, lives are lost because the basic necessities to keep them warm were not accessible.They have no means to buy warm clothes, nor heat their homes! This winter, Imam Hussein Development and Relief Foundation (IHDRF) is embarking upon a project to provide the vulnerable and displaced people with warm clothing and heaters to help them survive through the harsh winter.
New clothes are purchased and displayed in “shop” style structures allowing the recipients to go to a “shop” and select the clothing they need. We believe in protecting the dignity of the vulnerable and they should not be humiliated while seeking help. Additionally, IHDRF will be distributing heaters to help keep the houses warm. Based on the current needs, we will be providing a choice of two types of heaters: oil based and electric. We hope that you will help us “spread the warmth” through your generous donations as well as by spreading the word to family and friends.
