AMAR has programmes to empower and improve the lives of women across the Middle East.
Employs local people to deliver local resources to where they’re needed most.
AMAR is an award-winning charity that builds and improves the lives and livelihoods of some of the world’s poorest and most disadvantaged people.
For more than 27 years, we have provided professional health care, education and training on a sustained and lasting basis. Our locally educated and trained professionals and volunteers have delivered more than 10 million medical consultations.
AMAR runs Public Health Care Centres for tens of thousands of Yazidi people displaced in 2014 when the invasion by the so-called Islamic State forced millions from their homes. More than two years since ISIS was ousted, our work continues for the victims, who are scarred both physically and mentally.
We are also leading advocates in the campaigns to combat religious discrimination and to prevent sexual violence in conflict.
UNHCR, @MSF_Iraq, & @AMARLondon are on the ground in northern Iraq preparing IDPs and refugees for the pandemic. The goal is to keep the virus out of the camps and settlements. The NGOs are doing great work. And I am sure that they would appreciate $$$ donations.— Geoffrey P. Johnston😎🇨🇦 (@GeoffyPJohnston) May 24, 2020
Amazing to see Laila smiling and in the arms of her family after all these years. So many brave #Yazidi women and girls have suffered the most terrible physical and mental torture and still the suffering goes on for many. twitter.com/94Qassim/statu…
