OUR MISSION

OUR MISSION IS SIMPLE: WE REBUILD LIVES.

We carry out our mission by delivering critical health care, emergency aid, and educational programs to internally displaced persons, refugees and other underserved communities in the Middle East. Our programs are delivered in-country by a wholly native workforce and volunteer base, and project supplies are locally sourced whenever possible. We always regard those we serve as partners – not as victims – respecting cultural and community values.

OUR HISTORY

In 1991 the regime of Saddam Hussein began persecuting the Marsh Arabs in southern Iraq, draining the marshes and attacking the villages. After a visit to the region, Founder & President Baroness Emma Nicholson launched an appeal – Assisting Marsh Arabs & Refugees – to send much needed relief. Almost 25 years later, her mission continues. Our work has evolved beyond the original efforts, but we keep the name “AMAR” which translates as “the builder” in some Arabic dialects to remind us of our central mission – rebuilding lives.
