Bringing medical care to tens of thousands

Our medical teams are reaching Iraq’s most vulnerable communities.

Top of the class

Vital education and training programmes throughout Iraq.

Protecting women

AMAR has programmes to empower and improve the lives of women across the Middle East.

AMAR’s model

Employs local people to deliver local resources to where they’re needed most.

AMAR IS AN AWARD-WINNING CHARITY THAT WORKS IN THE MIDDLE EAST, BUILDING AND IMPROVING THE LIVES AND LIVELIHOODS OF SOME OF THE WORLD’S POOREST AND MOST DISADVANTAGED PEOPLE.

FOR OVER 25 YEARS WE HAVE PROVIDED PROFESSIONAL HEALTH AND EDUCATION ON A SUSTAINED AND LASTING BASIS, AND TODAY WE DELIVER TENS OF THOUSANDS OF MEDICAL CONSULTATIONS EACH YEAR.

AMAR RUNS HEALTH CLINICS FOR THE 2 MILLION PEOPLE WHO ARE CURRENTLY DISPLACED IN IRAQ.  WE HAVE BEEN OPERATING IN THE INTERNALLY DISPLACED PEOPLE (IDP) CAMPS SINCE JUNE 2014, WHEN THE INVASION BY ISLAMIC STATE FORCED MILLIONS FROM THEIR HOMES. WHEREVER POSSIBLE, WE EMPLOY LOCAL PEOPLE AND USE LOCAL RESOURCES TO BRING ABOUT SUSTAINABLE CHANGE.

During the @IBBC_London dinner, President @BarhamSalih found time to greet Amar Kanim whose terrifying ordeal 27 years ago led to the formation of my charity @AMARLondon and whose story featured in a recent @BBCPanorama. He now serves as an AMAR Champion. Retweeted by AMAR International
