My charity is locally built, managed and sustainable, but most small organisations like us receive no government support
I can guarantee that the charity I have been running in Iraq for the past 26 years will not be embarrassed by the shocking behaviour of our expat staff, as recently highlighted in the press. We don’t have any expat staff.
I founded Amar International to help the many thousands of Iraqis maimed by chemical weapons, the Marsh Arabs forced into tented exile in Iran, and the countless other victims of Saddam Hussein’s genocidal regime.
It’s not how much you give, it’s how wisely and how well that money is spent.
