All the funds will benefit Generation of Iraq
Generation Iraq is an international non-profit organization which seeks to improve the lives of individuals and communities in Iraq. Our projects provide immediate and long-term assistance to Iraqi widows and the disabled, as well as orphans and disadvantaged youth. Our vision is that Iraqis become self-sustaining individuals, working together to rebuild their homeland. We endeavor to instill compassion and care in and for Iraq?s communities, building towards common goals of peace, security, and prosperity.
