Building on the energy created by a coalition of four veteran-led organizations, the Iraqi Children Foundation (ICF) and its "Soccer Salam" partners announced this week the launch of "One Team, One Dream" to provide $20,000 more in aid to Iraqi kids and families fleeing ISIS.
After a December airlift of 5 tons of winter aid and soccer balls, the Soccer Salam coalition - ICF, EPIC, Karadah Project, and Goals and Dreams - moved next to address critical gaps in humanitarian aid for those fleeing Anbar by providing clean water, "peace baskets" of food, other aid and - of course, for the children - more soccer balls!
"We are on a roll," said Jonathan Webb, Chairman of ICF. "Even the smallest gift done with great love for the children of Iraq will make a difference."
New funds raised will help provide more food and water, as well as shoes, tents. health care, and even shower/toilet facilities.
