We have a school in Iraq!
Love Does has been working in Iraq since the summer of 2014, when ISIS took control of vast areas of Northern Iraq and displaced almost a million people. During this time we have zeroed in on the refugee crisis, providing emergency supplies and aid, and then focusing our efforts on a school for refugee children.
Our school is located in Soran, a beautiful mountain town with a diverse community of people from all across the region. As the conflict continues to change in this region, we see a continuous flux of refugee families coming and going through Soran. Though this community is changing, our school is a wonderful constant, a place open to any refugee children needing an education. One of the most helpful ways that you can get involved is by making a monthly pledge to help support a student at the school.
This school is changing everything for this beautiful community! We’re grateful for you!
We've finished building The Love Does Village for Syrian Refugees!
We've been working in Northern Iraq for a few years now and have come to love the many different people in this area. Some of our newest friends are the community of Syrian refugees who have been living in makeshift homes made up of tarps and shells of buildings. We know how important it is to have a safe place to live and grow families. Thus, the idea of The Love Does Village was born.
With the support of some of our amazing friends, we built the 20 homes that make up the Love Does Village. Today, the village is a lively center of this community, and you made it all possible. We cannot wait to see the impact of these homes for generations to come! Click here to read a blog post about the village!
Here's what you've built:
20 homes, each of them costs $12,500 to Build.
(Blue homes = Fully Funded)

Now that the village is complete, we need your help to keep it running for years to come! The continuing costs will be electricity, water, and sanitation, as well as miscellaneous repairs. Join us as we continue to help this amazing community!
