Iraq

Thank you

ISIS attacks in Iraq have meant thousands of people have been forced to flee their homes, leaving families with young children in desperate need of food and supplies. Your generous gift went directly to one of those families in the Kirkuk region.

Meet Nadi

When ISIS came to Iraq's Diyala province, local shopkeeper Nadi had no choice but to take her children and flee, leaving her home and livelihood behind.

By the time ISIS were driven out, and Nadi and her family could return, everything had been broken, burnt or stolen. Even the roof of their home had collapsed.

To help people like Nadi reopen their businesses and give the local economy a much-needed kick-start, we distributed cash grants for equipment, repairs and restocking.

Thanks to a grant we gave her, funded by people like you, Nadi was able to rebuild her home and her shop. Today, her neighbours in Jalawla town have somewhere to buy supplies again, and Nadi is earning a living for herself and her family.

There is a small chance that we will raise more money than is needed for this project. If this happens, we'll spend any additional funds on other Oxfam projects - wherever the need is greatest.
