BENEFITING: American Red Cross
The Iraqi Red Crescent has mobilized 4,000 volunteers and staff who are distributing food, water, and relief items. As the number of displaced families continues to increase—with some moving multiple times—the Red Crescent is even delivering relief supplies to people in-transit.
The American Red Cross has contributed $50,000 to strengthen the Iraqi Red Crescent’s ability to provide lifesaving assistance to displaced persons. In towns such as Sinjar, families are in need of the most basic items for their survival, and the Iraqi Red Crescent is distributing items such as water, ice, milk for babies, and hot meals every day.
