The Kurdistan Red Crescent Society, Heyva Sor a Kurdistanê, celebrates three decades of providing vital aid to thousands of vulnerable children affected by conflict and natural disaster in Kurdish-majority regions.
Children in Kurdistan, the state-less nation living across Turkish, Syrian, Iraqi and Iranian borders, have endured prolonged conflicts resulting in tens of thousands of children becoming orphaned and requiring support.
The initiative provides children with financial and practical resources, including schemes that address the longer-term provision of basic needs, offering stability and hope for a brighter future. Currently, the organisation actively supports 775 children through the project.
Almost a quarter of children worldwide live in worn-torn countries or areas affected by natural disasters, with over 140 million children having lost their families due to such adversity, recent UNICEF data reveals.
The Kurdish Red Crescent underscores the urgency of assisting children deprived of basic necessities such as medical care, education, and adequate nutrition.
The organisation invites donations of any size to provide support to vulnerable children.
