Cooking for a cause!
As part of our 2016 Ramadan Appeal, we asked you to bring the flavours of Baghdad into your homes whilst hosting your own Iraqi fundraising suppers. With help from British-Iraqi chef, Philip Juma of JUMA Kitchen, our amazing supporters learnt the art of some of Iraq’s most treasured dishes – from Falafel to Kubba and Quozi, raising vital funds for displaced families in Iraq.
Thanks to all of your incredible efforts, we were able to feed over 850 families in Baghdad, Babil and Najaf, all of whom have been displaced from their homes by ISIS violence. Watch this space for our 2017 Ramadan Campaign!
Imran’s adrenaline challenge
I really wanted to do something to help Iraqis, and given AMAR’s expertise and long history of working in Iraq, I knew it was the charity for me. I’ve always been scared of heights, so I set myself the challenge of a life-time: a sky-dive and bungee jump! Both were completely outside my comfort zone, but I would urge anyone thinking about taking on a challenge to go for it – especially when it is in aid of such an importance cause.
