IARP will partner with the Critical Needs Support Foundation (CNSF) to provide hygiene kits to vulnerable Iraqi families, widows, and orphans living in IDP camps.

CNSF: CNSF is a small Iraqi non-governmental organization. CNSF provides critical support and delivers hope to people most in need, without bias. Projects include delivering food and water supplies to various IDP camps, maintaining a safe house for women previously captured by ISIS, running the New Life Project which teaches men and women new skills so they are able to search for employment or start their own small businesses.

Hygiene project: The protracted humanitarian crisis in Iraq is causing displaced families and individuals to face increased hardship and debt as they struggle to afford essential items to survive. Food is often prioritized over basic hygiene items. Without support, this negatively impacts public health and the dignity of displaced peoples. CNSF aims to provide hygiene kits and education to vulnerable displaced families and individuals, including widows and orphans. 

With your support, IARP will provide funding for hygiene kits to vulnerable displaced families and individuals, including widows and orphans fleeing Mosul.

Each hygiene kit costs $15.10 and contains the following: 

-Nail scissors
-Feminine hygiene products
-Small towel
-3 toothbrushes
-Wet wipes
-Cotton swabs
-Hand sanitizer
-First-aid kit
-Laundry and dishwashing powder
-Large box for storage
-Possibly diapers

Would you consider partnering with us and fund a hygiene kit for only $15.10?

Basic education on how to use the items in the hygiene kit can help reduce the chance of infectious diseases being spread in camps, especially diseases of the skin and those specific to women. This simple, but important course will include:

-Explanation of the importance of hygiene and its advantages, including a small notebook containing pictures
-Dental hygiene information
-Wound treatment
-Feminine hygiene

Please join us as we kick off this new urgent project!
