What We Do
Help the Needy is an international relief and development charity, established in 1992, which is primarily dedicated to helping the two most vulnerable groups in society; orphans and widows.
Our work endeavours to fulfil two important objectives. The first is humanitarian via aid, food and healthcare. The second is development, via sustainable projects such as education, training, female-led enterprises, women empowerment and providing permanent shelter.
Our experience in Iraq has now allowed us to expand our humanitarian relief and development work to include other poverty-stricken communities around the world. Help the Needy is currently working with vulnerable groups in Albania, Bangladesh, Bosnia, Iraq, Kosovo, Pakistan and Rwanda.
Help the Needy is determined to continue to support the people of Iraq; a nation that has still yet to recover from three catastrophic wars and civil armed conflict, along with the devastating 13-year economic embargo. We hope and intend to reach more people and more places than ever before regardless of race, gender, nationality, ethnicity or religion.
Help the Needy has helped thousands of vulnerable and needy people so far. 2010 witnessed the initiation of a considerable number of new projects catering to the particular needs of people within the targeted regions. Our efforts reached not only those affected by wars and conflicts but also those who were affected by natural disasters such as the floods that devastated Pakistan in 2010.
