Helping where Humanity needs us

We wish to raise awareness about the poor living conditions of these victims and the help that is urgently required for the internally displaced Kurdish and Iraqi people as well as the Syrian refugees in a number of camps across Kurdistan.

Through fundraising events, we help civilians who are deprived of basic human needs and rights as a direct and indirect result of the Islamic State invasion. With the help of a few trusted non-profit organisations in Kurdistan, we are able to deliver humanitarian assistance.

The fundraising events are set up to not only raise funds for victims of war in Kurdistan but also to benefit the New Zealand society as well. These are evident from previous projects:

Being so far away and watching what people are going through is very hard to deal with, so I decided to donate to a charity who allow me to feel good about helping out. They keep me up to date about where the donations have gone and send me pictures of when the necessities have been received by the refugees. It feels good to be able to contribute towards a crisis happening miles away.
