Grand distribution of goods to orphans, widows and poor families

Families waiting for distribution1904 families from 11 provinces in Iraq received assistance during the months of May, June and July 2010. It was the greatest distribution ever done by World Wide Welfare to the needy families in Iraq. All thanks go to contributors and donors.

The number of widows and orphans is increasing in Iraq as a result of the deteriorating security situation. Failure of the government to provide basic services to the people makes it very difficult for poor families to survive. The number of widows is estimated at one million, the number of orphans is four million and the number of disabled is one million according to government figures. One of the projects of World Wide Welfare is to give cash assistance, distribute household goods and basic food baskets to the poor and needy families.

The number of families and provinces that benefited from the distribution:

  • 200 families from Baghdad

  • 87 families from Diwania (Al-Qadisiyya)
  • 25 families from Samawa (Al-Muthanna)
  • 56 families from Nasiriyah (DheeQar)
  • 56 families from Alemara (Meesan)
  • 26 families from Diyala,25 families from Wasit
  • 1275 families from Najaf Province

One very important project adopted by World Wide Welfare is to help poor men and women with marriage expenses; 25 newly-wed couples were awarded 1,500,000 Iraqi Dinars to help with their marriage expenses.

All the transport and travel expenses were paid by the charity. Free meals were given to all the families who attend on the distribution days.

World Wide Welfare would like to thank all people who donated generously which made our mission possible. My dedication goes to the main donors to the charity who are Iraqi families living abroad and especially in the UK.

World Wide Welfare operates on zero admin cost since 1993 and helps thousands of poor and needy people in many countries through projects covering education, humanitarian relief, medical assistance, basic food basket, orphans sponsorship, widows and disabled sponsorship.
