My best friend's family is in desperate need of help. I want to fundraise money to help them through everything. The family is living in Kurdistan, 4 women, 1 man, and 12 children. The whole family is sleeping on the concrete floor in a two bedroom house with no power, and no money. There is only 1 man left in the house because the rest have unfortunately all passed away whilst fighting in the war with ISIS. At the moment they are surviving off the few people's generosity in the neighbourhood that is left around them but this can't continue much longer.
The main reason I want to raise money is because they need some stability in their life. There are lots of things they need in order to just be safe. This includes a house that has all the basic necessities, water, power, warmth. They need money for basic food, medical, and hygienic resources. They are on the verge of being kicked out of the little house they are staying in despite everything they are going through.
My best friends Nana is on the verge of dying, she has been diagnosed with kidney stones and gallstones which are very large and are getting deadly. The family cannot afford surgery for her, and if she misses this surgery then that could unfortunately be it for her. Despite being extremely ill she is still left to sleep on concrete floors and without food or water some days.
The town they are living in is constantly in war with surrounding countries, and in order to be safe they realistically need to move to somewhere that is far away from the town they are in. This town is always in war and no one is talking about it. There is no awareness around this issue and that is what I want to change!
All funds that are raised will go straight to the family. My best friend and I will be travelling to the family in Iraq to personally give the family the help they need and hopefully move them away from the disasters happening every day around them.
The family is trying their hardest to stay positive but they need your help!!
Every dollar, prayer and thought will be appreciated and will be a huge help to this family.
Thank you for all your support.
