UNHCR | Donate to help refugees from Iraq fleeing war and violence
Shamsa’s husband was killed, leaving her to raise six children alone in a country torn apart by conflict.
She is just one of thousands of war widows who have been driven from their homes with no income, no security and nowhere to go.
Families like Shamsa’s are at risk of horrendous acts of violence, challenging living conditions in camps and forced evictions. Many who try to return home find their houses completely destroyed and have to go back to the camps or flee to other locations. They need our support.
We are on the ground, providing protection, shelter and warmth. But our stocks are running low.
We need your help to get tents, blankets and cash assistance to rebuild their homes, to people left vulnerable by this horrific conflict.

At UNHCR, we can get to the heart of a crisis within 72 hours. We are working in 134 countries around the world, but we rely almost entirely on voluntary contributions.
Your support will help us reach Iraqis who have withstood years of conflict. You can help them rebuild their lives.
