The nations that best understand Somalia, which is fighting a deadly famine, are those nations which themselves had to fight oppression and poverty in the past. The Iraqi people are trying to recover from the destruction of the devastating war they went through, but they are not remaining silent to the humanitarian crisis unfolding in East Africa. A number of charities in Iraq handed the funds they raised to the IHH Humanitarian Relief Foundation.
The Iraqi nongovernmental organizations that the IHH contributed to during the Iraqi War and still supports sent the funds they raised among themselves to the foundation to be extended to Somalia. The funds that the Iraqi people donated to our foundation to help East Africa fight famine will touch the hearts of the Somali people.
