For World Book Day 2018, the AMAR International Charitable Foundation has delivered over 6,000 illustrated children's books to displaced children in Iraq, all specifically designed for IDP youth.
Hussein Al-Alak (pictured below), who is running the Manchester 10k on behalf of AMAR, said:
“It’s the only charity in the United Kingdom that supports health, education and, more importantly, mental health programmes, in Iraq ...
“You’ve got a lot of amazing causes [in the race] and it’s nice to be able to say: ‘This is what we’re doing at AMAR’."
