Ensure a safe return home
Ten-year-old Salah just wanted to get his toys. Now he is fighting to walk again.
After fleeing Mosul, Salah and his brother left the safety of camp to check on their home. Outside his front door, Salah picked up an IED. It exploded, and he lost his arm and leg.
Your gift won't just heal the wounds of conflict. It will prevent them.
Give today to:
- Provide displaced Iraqis with physical therapy to heal their bodies and counseling to support their emotional recovery
- Teach those returning home to Mosul about the weapons they may encounter and how to stay safe
- Support our demining team as they work to make the land safe by removing explosive remnants of war
Handicap International donors help Salah and children like him recover emotionally and physically. By teaching those returning to Mosul about the weapons they may encounter, our donors make the long road home safer. Be part of this life-saving work.
Any funds raised beyond the needs of our response in Iraq will be used to support other vital programs in the area and around the world.
