Al-Ayn In Iraq

Our Work

We believe that when you give children the tools they need to achieve their potential, the possibilities are endless.

At Al-Ayn, our goal is to empower every orphaned child in poverty. We believe that when
a child is supported, their own future is transformed as well as their families, and society
at large.

Orphaned Child Sponsorship

It doesn’t cost much to save an orphaned child from crisis. At Al-Ayn we begin with dignity.

It allows us to show orphaned children that they are valued and cared for. It allows us to engender recovery from trauma and mental health issues. It inspires hope.

Your support provides an orphaned child with urgent financial aid (in the form of regular monthly allowances), which is spent by their guardian on the essential needs of the child. Our comprehensive care system then gives the child access to medical care, mental health support, tuition, housing support and more.

The monthly financial support received by each eligible child is life changing. Orphaned children, just like any other children, deserve to be given a chance. A chance to grow, a chance to discover, a chance to believe in the limitless possibilities their future can hold. 100% of your donations and sponsorship payments reach the orphaned children. We don’t deduct admin fees.

Dignity. Recovery. Hope.

To date, we have provided comprehensive support to over 150,000 orphaned children, across every province of Iraq.

Your support has allowed 75,000+ physical and mental health treatments to be provided. Over 747 homes have been rebuilt, including housing complexes, to provide shelter to hundreds of families. Regular food aid continues to be distributed to every registered household.

Providing access to basic care is just the beginning. We aim to ensure every child’s educational needs are being catered for through tuition programmes and Back to School packages.

To support orphaned children as they transition into adulthood, 3 vocational training centres are already serving thousands of children and youth in Iraq. A further 12 Luminous Stars centres are under construction, while our flagship Hikayati (My Story) programme is also underway. Both include extensive programmes that have become a tool for hope for thousands of orphaned children.

Our commitment to those we serve in Iraq is unwavering, and we are able to what we do
thanks to supporters like you.
