After decades of war and unrest, millions of people in Iraq have been left in dire need. At least 4.1 million people are currently in need in Iraq with approximately half being children.

Since the devastating refugee crisis in 2014, 1.5 million people in Iraq remain internally displaced. Amongst those displaced, children are at greatest risk, with hundreds of thousands being withdrawn from school. These children are also at serious risk of death, injury and abduction.



Our work focuses particularly on supporting orphans and vulnerable children and women. Female-headed households where the father has either passed away, been killed or are seriously ill, are at great risk of poverty. Children from these households are at risk of facing hunger, being withdrawn from school and entering a recurring cycle of poverty.

By supporting educational and spiritual programs alongside food aid, water aid and emergency relief, The Zahra Trust works to care for these vulnerable individuals physically and mentally.

This work is only possible through your support.
