HÁWAR.help operates in Iraq and Afghanistan. Iraq is receiving less and less public attention, while conditions continue to worsen. HÁWAR.help has been active in Iraq for years and puts a great emphasis on educational projects for women and girls.
The donations support the BACK TO LIFE & BACK TO SCHOOL projects, covering the salaries of up to 30 teachers and improving the learning conditions and quality of teaching for approximately 2,195 students. 12 classrooms are to be built, as well as a laboratory and a library. In Afghanistan, since the takeover of the Taliban, the operation of houses in which women seeking protection can stay overnight, has been prohibited.
Therefore, despite the many challenges, HÁWAR.help plans to open and expand one of the last underground shelters for women fleeing from sexual violence from their husbands. The women will receive legal counseling, trauma therapy, as well as medical care and humanitarian food packages. There is a lack of funds for everything: infrastructure and renovation of the old buildings, dormitories, mattresses, food, medicine and much more.
