Development and Relief Foundation firmly supports the Declaration of Rights of the Child as provided by the United Nations General Assembly. In fact, our core values match the articles in this declaration. Article 2 states that children have “the right to special protection for the child’s physical, mental, and social development.”
According to UNICEF, there are over 4 million orphans living on the streets of Iraq. We strive to decrease this number by providing orphans with foster families, financial support, clothing, food, and education.
Currently, DRF supports over 6,600 orphans thanks to its generous donors. For $600 (US) a year (or $50/month), you can support an orphan in our program. Donate by check, money order, credit card, or PayPal.
Checks and money orders can be sent by mail to 7944 N. Maple Ave. Ste: #115 Fresno, CA 93720 USA. Credit card and PayPal donations can be made online through our donation’s page.
If you’d like to sponsor a specific orphan, the sponsorship amount is $720 a year. Within eight to ten weeks after sending your donation of sponsoring an orphan for one year, you will receive more information (e.g. pictures and info card).
