DONATE NOW: Help provide lifesaving aid to thousands of families fleeing violence in Iraq

More than 1,000,000 Iraqis have fled their homes in the wake of escalating violence — this year alone. They join an additional 1,000,000 previously displaced Iraqis and refugees seeking safety from violent conflict. Many have sought sanctuary in the northern Kurdish region.
