Ben,
I thought you might want to see your generosity in action. Click on the link below to see pictures of the people you have impacted in the besieged town of al-Khaladiyah, Anbar Province, Iraq.

Emergency food aid (and some soccer balls and sweets for the kids) was delivered to 515 families in the besieged town of al-Khaladiyah in Anbar Province. Our Iraq Health Aid Organization friends, courageous young Iraqis, risked their lives to deliver aid purchased through your generous donation to our Soccer Salam partnership. Your support was given to an area where the UN and any of the dozens of large aid organizations have not been able to help because of the danger.

I don't think we can truly understand what a risky undertaking this was to get aid to al-Khaladiyah in Anbar Province. The young Iraqis who took on this mission exhibited courage at its finest. We had asked that they consider the risks carefully. The founder of the Iraq Health Organization, and good friend, Hala, expressed the views of these young Iraqis in the following email:
-----------------------------------------
"When there is a will, there is a way.... This is Iraq, this is home! Can you imagine how you would act if ISIS were at your footsteps? The team would have done it anyways but your support gave it a different flavor. It tells us all that we are not alone.
Thank you for your support and trust and you should expect nothing less from real Iraqis.
Love and respect to your dedication.
Hala"

CROWDRISING SINCE: Jul 13, 2015
Stuff About Me:

After multiple deployments to Iraq with the US Army, I felt a need to continue supporting the brave and courageous Iraqis I worked with and considered dear friends. I am one of many veterans who is working to build sustainable and long-term solutions in partnership with the people of Iraq. The nonprofit I founded, The Karadah Project, is partnering with other veteran-led nonprofits, Education for Peace in Iraq (EPIC), The Iraqi Children Foundation, and Goals and Dreams, to bring relief to some of the 3 million displaced Iraqi children and families. Help us make a child smile, bring comfort to a mother, and lessen the stress on a father. Join us in this effort to make a real difference in the life of real people.
