Story

Thank you for visiting our  'Walk for Iraq'  fundraising page.

On Saturday the 16th of June we took part in a 19km walk from Hastings to Rye (by the South Coast of England) to fund life saving activities in Iraq

With the current crisis in Iraq, civilians are bearing the brunt of the violence. The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) is working closely with the Iraqi Red Crescent to respond to the growing humanitarian needs of the people of Iraq. The ICRC is helping people on a daily basis through emergency relief activities such as food distrbution, supplying essential household items and hygiene parcels. They also provide access to clean water as well as sanitation services, two things which have become incredibly precious due to their rare supply.  Additionally, they support medical services, hospitals, and health centres giving people access to vital, life saving medical treatments.

The ICRC spreads the message of international humanitarian law reminding soldiers to respect the Geneva conventions, and works on re-uniting people who have been separated from their loved ones through a tracing program. 

Money raised will be given to the British Red Cross who will then send it to the ICRC to support their life-saving work in Iraq.   Please help us to raise at least £7000 and

to see how your money will be spent.
