Mustafa is five years old. He had no family, no shelter and no safe place to reside. Mustafa was homeless and living on the street, alone, after he lost his parents to war. Thousands of children like Mustafa roam the streets of Iraq and have been deprived of safety and education. Only a small percentage of children aged between five and fourteen are in full time education. It is the mission of the Imam Hussein Charity to help the orphans like Mustafa. Since hearing about
Mustafa and his story, IHC has been able to provide him with a safe place to call home, study supplies and food. After checking in with Mustafa last year during the pandemic, he told us; “Thank you so much for helping me, I now am learning! My favorite subjects are reading and writing. I hope to be a journalist one day to tell the stories of others like me to the world”.
Imam Hussein Charity has helped a number of children this year alone and we are so proud of them. Inshallah, with your help and sponsorships, we can help and support more children like Mustafa.
