ONE TEAM, ONE DREAM: Soccer Balls and Humanitarian Aid for Iraqi Kids

July 16, 2015

Building on the energy created by a coalition of four veteran-led organizations, the Iraqi Children Foundation (ICF) and its “Soccer Salam” partners announced this week the launch of “One Team, One Dream” to provide $20,000 more in aid to Iraqi kids and families fleeing ISIS.

After a December airlift of 5 tons of winter aid and soccer balls, the Soccer Salam coalition – ICF, EPIC, Karadah Project, and Goals and Dreams – moved next to address critical gaps in humanitarian aid for those fleeing Anbar by providing clean water, “peace baskets” of food, other aid and – of course, for the children – more soccer balls!

“We are on a roll,” said Jonathan Webb, Chairman of ICF. “Even the smallest gift done with great love for the children of Iraq will make a difference.”

New funds raised will help provide more food and water, as well as shoes, tents, health care, and even shower/toilet facilities.

ICF and its Soccer Salam partners applaud the work of our wonderful Iraqi NGO partner, the Iraq Aid Health Organization, for its on-the-ground services in deliver assistance and medical care.

ICF is raising $5,000 toward the coalition’s $20,000 goal. You are invited to join the team by donating at “One Team, One Dream.”
