Iraq: A Whole Country is Crying for Help, but Their Voice Goes Unheard.

Please, help the voiceless with your donation!

It is difficult for anyone outside Iraq to imagine what is happening there. Ordinary people are required to deal with situation that would put a challenge to trained soldiers. Let us listen together to the account of an Iraqi who managed to escape from Talafar:

Ehsan belongs to a Turkoman family from Talafar. Like all other families from this city, he and his family had to flee and seek comparative safety elsewhere, losing all their documents and possessions on the way. This is his story, as he tells it:

Transforming Darkness Into Light For The Deprived

          

Once endemic in most countries but is confined to Africa, Asia, Middle East and Aboriginal communities in Australia now.

Whether its trachoma in Syria, corneal scars in Lebanon or refractive errors in Iraq it is apparent that the Middle East needs our support. To think we take one of our five senses for granted is a thought that many find difficult to grasp; however, the truth of the matter is blindness is an epidemic that devastates many countries around the world today.  Unlike many other epidemics such as cancer or aids, where the cure is difficult to discover, over 80% of blindness is preventable that equates to a staggering 800 million people that suffer unnecessarily. The assumption might be made that the Middle Eastern government has the recourses to deal with this epidemic however one will notice how blindness directly dwindles the recourses needed to aid in the fight against blindness.

As we know that the eyesight of an individual naturally deteriorates with age; this proves to be the least of problems in the Middle East when acknowledging studies similar to one done in Lebanon where 231 children were studied in three blind schools in the age range of 6-20 years of age. Of these students 70 % were blind before the age of two, meaning that the quality of life is not entirely enjoyed and many young children are forced to live a life of additional hardships. A more recent study revealed that out of 137 blind Jordanian children 122 cases (77.7%) were found after 1970 some in which could have been treated with ease given the resources the developed countries have today. The time and date of these statistics mean that the problem is not getting better it is in fact taking a change for the worse.

The Lady Fatemah Trust is launching an appeal to raise funds for procurement artificial limbs for assisting amputee children

“This is the reality of what happened in Iraq; there is no other reality….”

                 

 

“…Line up the bodies of the children, the thousands of children - the infants, the toddlers, the school kids - whose bodies were torn to pieces, burned alive or riddled with bullets during the American invasion and occupation of Iraq. Line them up in the desert sand, walk past them, mile after mile, all those twisted corpses, those scraps of

torn flesh and seeping viscera, those blank faces, those staring eyes fixed forever on nothingness.

ONE IN EVERY SEVEN IRAQI IS AN ORPHAN" LFT Donors PLEASE DONATE Generously towards the Orphan Project - GBP 30.00 per month will feed then, cloth them and educate them

LFT has now placed mandatory condition on widows that compulsory school attendance for all orphans. They have to provide examinations results at the end each semester, In order to have an educated generation and prevent child labour.

 

 

Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) said:

“There in paradise is a house is called "House of Joy" no one enters it, except who makes the Faithfuls's orphans are happy”

As Iraqis continue to die, increasing numbers of children are orphaned and must live in institutions.  Iraqi officials and orphanage staff struggle to care for Iraq's orphaned children in state facilities that are under-resourced and understaffed updated as of March 2013. The brutal realty is one in every seven Iraqis is an orphan. That is the toll Iraqi children are paying, the invasion has caused untold miseries for Iraqis, exceeding those inflicted on them by their former oppressors, the group that ruled Iraq under Saddam Hussein. The fact is that Iraq has turned into a country of orphans. But the exact figure only became a reality recently, when the Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs made public its own statistics. “A report from the United Nations said that there was "around 870,000 children orphaned by the death of one or both parents in Iraq."
