THE STORY:

Soccer Salam is a lifesaving program that delivers emergency humanitarian aid and the joy of play to vulnerable children and families fleeing violence in Iraq.

Alongside distributions of food, clean water, medicine, blankets, and other essentials, we deliver soccer balls and other toys wherever possible. The toll that witnessing violence takes on a young person is devastating, but meaningful gestures of kindness can foster long-lasting memories and, for at least a moment, let children live and play as children.

To date, we have delivered aid to nearly 3,000 families in Baghdad and across Iraq, including areas previously unreached by other aid agencies. When we hit our goal for this campaign, your generosity will enable us to help another 3,000 families in need.

Our Iraq-based team members have decades of experience working on-the-ground in support of the children and families most in need. Their first-hand knowledge of the changing situation in Iraq ensures that every donation's impact is maximized.
