A Campaign of Love for Iraqi Orphans and Street Children

$19,575 from 85 donors $30,000 goal

100% of all donations go directly to the Sponsor Iraqi Children Foundation.

What is the Sponsor Iraqi Children Foundation’s A Campaign of Love Campaign?
The Campaign of Love for Iraqi Orphans and Street Children is a campaign to mobilize a life-changing surge of love for millions of children orphaned by violence.
What does $120 a month ($1,440/year) provide?
A gift of $120 a month covers all expenses for giving an orphan or street child the following loving services:
·$30 for a healthy breakfast and lunch
·$28 for tutoring, including teachers and school supplies
·$15 for social workers and home visits
·$47 for rental and maintenance of center as a safe haven, including security guard, cooking and housekeeping services, electricity, etc.
Where does my money go?
SICF works hard to keep its overhead expenses very low. In 2011, SICF business expenses came to less than 3.3% of the budget, and went to cover such operating expenses as website, tax/accounting, state registration, Paypal, and bank fees. SICF has no paid US staff. We are all volunteers. And we operate out of donated office space
How do I know my donation will make a difference?
All donors will receive a story and a photo about a life that has been changed through the work of Sponsor Iraqi Children Foundation.

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.

Our mission is to assist the people of Iraq by mobilizing a life-changing surge of love for millions of children orphaned by violence

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.
