Iraq Relief: Appeal for Victim Support

Later that night
I held an atlas in my lap
ran my fingers across the whole world
and whispered
where does it hurt?
it answered
(Warsan Shire)

The World Federation adds its voice to the growing calls of condemnation following the recent blasts in the Karrada District, Baghdad and Balad in Iraq.  It is now imperative upon us a community, to help the victims in whatever manner we can. Humanity dictates that we must come together and counter these evil and inhumane actions with love, kindness and compassion towards those impacted by their violence.  

The festival of Eid turned into mourning for thousands in Iraq as they struggled to make sense of this tragedy. Children who were doing Eid shopping with their parents suddenly became orphans, their lives torn apart in a matter of minutes.

The country and the people of Iraq are struggling to cope with the aftermath of this catastrophe and at a moment like this, as human beings we need to rise in solidarity with our fellow Muslims. The World Federation has launched an Appeal For Victim Support as part of the Iraq Relief Fund and is appealing to you, our worldwide community, to support us in bringing some relief to the victims.  With your donations, we will provide direct humanitarian aid to those who been most affected by this attacks in the Karrada District and Balad.

The President of The World Federation, Dr Moledina said: ‘These attacks by Daesh have torn Iraq apart. They have created a sense of bitter sectarian division and our response to this should be to focus on spreading tolerance and kindness where ever possible. The World Federation has a strong track record in Iraq with many excellent relationships and we will work to help the victims of both recent attacks in the Karrada District and Balad. Please donate today to help the families of the victims to re-build their lives.
