The hands and feet of Jesus providing hope & love for children of war
The needs in Iraq and the Middle East are great. Nearly 1,000,000 orphans and a similar number of widows reside in the region, and their status means they have no community and are left vulnerable to exploitation, human trafficking, and indoctrination by extremists. Orphans of War is working with local partners to bring help where it’s most needed. We create safe places; establish clinics; help street children and victims of trafficking; and arrange for humanitarian aid distribution, trauma care, and legal intervention for children in detention.
"There are nearly 1,000,000 orphans and a similar number of widows in that region of the world."
— Jonathan Webb, FOUNDER
Orphans of War provides hope & love for children of war by addressing their physical, spiritual and emotional needs, and by providing opportunities for restoration and reconciliation. We encourage and empower our trusted partners to support not only children affected by war, but also their families and communities.
Jonathan has been working in conflict areas since first going to Iraq as an Army soldier in 2003. God touched his heart when he saw the victims of the conflict suffer, and he became haunted by the question “How do I love my enemies and care for their widows and orphans”? Seeking to be obedient, Jonathan began looking for ways to serve the Iraqi people. It started with a few small things, but soon the projects in Iraq began to grow as God opened remarkable doors. In the process Webb has earned the confidence and trust of Iraqi government and religious leaders as well as those Orphans of War is serving. He believes that by being courageous and doing what is right in front of us we can provide hope and love to those who need it, both in war-torn Iraq and here at home. Won’t you join us?
