Sponsor an Iraqi orphan or street child for six months
SICF began its work as a humanitarian assistance organization, offering concerned Americans as well as Iraqis an opportunity to take concrete action to help orphans. Mobilized by SICF, caring Americans in the United States, at the US Embassy, and other organizations helped collect and distribute food, medicine, school supplies, backpacks, shoes, and other humanitarian supplies.
In 2009, SICF was officially granted 501(c)(3) tax exempt status by the IRS.
Since 2009, SICF has launched several initiatives to help orphans and street children, including:
–Cosponsored a conference on orphans in Baghdad
–Developed, with the Children’s Village of New York, a “Community Care Worker” (CCW) training program to equip Iraqis to care for orphans with trauma and PTSD
–Provided monthly support for a year to orphans living in the City Dump
–Mobilized a “Surge of Love” flight, with FedEx support, to deliver a ton of school supplies, stuffed animals, and clothes from American donors to orphans in Iraq
–Rescued a Street Children Center after donor funding ran out and reopened it so 50 street kids and orphans can get tutoring, meals, recreation and compassionate care.
Your contribution will go towards the $720 needed to sponsor a child for six months.
