Ayda (not her real name) lives with her mother and little brother in a house built of mud and sheet metal in a poor neighborhood in Baghdad.
She attends the Hope Bus regularly and also works collecting empty cans from landfill to support her family.
Ayda loves going to the Hope Bus because she gets to learn and spend time with other children. She wants to be a teacher one day just like the teachers on the Hope Bus!
Your generous donations help us keep the dreams of Ayda and the other children alive. This Valentine's Day, support Iraq's most vulnerable children:
