URGENT funding needed for the
Iraq Response Program
We are calling all of our supporters to come together to help us reach an urgent funding appeal for US$10,000 to move the Iraq Response Program forward by the 30th June. Months of hard work have been put in to lay the solid foundations for this program and we are now ready to move this forward into a reality, and we need your help.

How will your money be utilised?
An initial and core element to the Iraq Response Program is to build capacity in the community. We are ready to launch a 20 hour, 6 week program, including lectures, discussions, stories, and videos that will be focused on educating local Yazedi health workers and community members so that they can provide adequate, appropriate, and accessible care to their communities. We have registrations for these courses pending, and will use the funds from this campaign secure resources to deliver these courses. Other costs we will use funds towards include the administrative costs associated with supporting our response team in the field, including visas, internal travel, accommodation and stipends.

Once we have achieved our urgent goal to raise $10,000 we will be in a positive position with our initial program well established and we can start to develop further valuable components of our program in Iraq. In particular, the Khanke community has asked for a Mother Baby space. We would love to provide such a space; classes could be delivered there, as well as providing space for peer-to-peer support. We will continue to focus on fundraising for this and other operational costs such as staff wages, transportation, and training materials, as a priority for the future.
