Join us in giving Iraqi orphans and street children the chance to experience the normal joys of childhood!
There may be as many as 800,000 orphans in Iraq today. Street children are estimated in the thousands. Many street children are impoverished orphans who beg on the streets or sell bottled water to help destitute relatives. They are vulnerable to exploitation by criminals and terrorists, as well as physical abuse, and human trafficking. Unless loving action is taken in the next 5-10 years, many orphans and street children may reach adulthood without help for the trauma and suffering they have experienced.
Please help us raise the funds needed to help these children. By giving them the gift of food, education, and social care, you are giving them much more: hope for a brighter future. Please give now and make a difference – this campaign ends December 31, 2012.

The Sponsor Iraqi Children Foundation is a US-based non-sectarian tax-exempt 501(c)(3) charity (26-1394773) founded by two Americans who worked in Baghdad during the war. SICF is proud to support a center for orphans and street children, and to partner with the award-winning Children’s Village of New York to train Iraqi social workers with skills to address trauma in children. Among its other projects, SICF also mobilized an airlift of more than a ton of school supplies and toys for orphans.
