Who We Are

The Al-Kawthar Project was launched by the Al-Khoei Foundation in 2010. The project followed the Iraqi Aid Group that was established by the Foundation in 2003. AlKawthar is a humanitarian project providing aid, basic necessities, medical care, education and micro-finance to widows and orphans in Iraq.


The Al-Kawthar Project has grown to sponsor over 550 orphans, and provide occasional aid to a further 1000 orphans and 600 widows. The work of the project continuously evolves to adapt to the changing conditions on the ground in Iraq.
