Conflict Has Been Especially Harsh on Women

“The conflict in Iraq was harsh especially for women, as in addition to displacement and insecurity, it has created thousands of widows and female-headed households, aggravating women’s vulnerability.  Women are exposed to poverty and insecurity because of lower overall income levels and particular disadvantages in terms of education, employment and adequate shelter.” United Nations

An impacted generation

Years of conflict in Iraq robbed a generation of the chance to complete their education. This has had a devastating impact on their ability to fulfil their potential and rebuild their lives.

According to the World Bank Iraq’s population is one of the youngest in the world with nearly 50% under the age of 19 years and a third between 15 and 29 years old. The statistics are harsh with over 3 million Iraqi children needing humanitarian help and 1 million Iraqi Christians fled to Jordan since 2003.

By donating today, you are helping provide educational, therapeutic and vocational courses for refugees.

Give the gift of Learning

They are a generation who have witnessed things that children should never see.

Yet the majority of young Iraqis have not lost hold of their personal dreams.

They are a driven generation who want to learn, they want to get good jobs and they want to rebuild their communities and live peacefully together.

At Mosaic Middle East we offer practical support through therapeutic, educational and vocational learning for Iraqi refugees in Jordan and young people in the Nineveh Governorate of northern Iraq.

Please support their learning this Christmas.

Restoring Hope and Transforming Lives

The first Olive Tree Centre opened in Madaba, Jordan in October 2019, and here we are already seeing hope restored and lives rebuilt.

The centre supports hundreds of refugees through a range of therapeutic, educational and outreach activities such as English classes, cooking classes, music and art lessons, sports activities and trauma workshops.

It also encourages refugees to develop new skills and empowers them through enterprise and outreach projects such as growing fresh produce, baking and sewing. These projects are enriching their lives and those of the communities around them.

Sponsor our Tree of Hope

When you support our Tree of Hope, you get the opportunity to express your compassion and support to thousands of refugees in Jordan.

Once sponsored, all 154 mosaic elements will be placed together to create this beautiful life-sized Olive Tree in the new centre – a symbol of strength, resilience and hope. Every person that supports our Tree of Hope will have their names or the names of their loved ones recorded alongside the tree.

To say thank you, we will also send you a commemorative certificate and a print of the Tree of Hope mosaic, once it's completed.

When you shake the olives off your trees, don’t go back over the branches and strip them bare—what’s left is for the foreigner, the orphan, and the widow. Deuteronomy 24:20

Amazingly, we have now sold out of 'Doves' and 'Olives'. But TWO wonderful options remain for donating Gold or Green Leaves for this beautiful Mosaic. Every item donated enables us to fund the amazing activities and running costs for the new Centre. Thank you!
