A Country of Survivors, But the Need is Still Strong
Two wars tore through Chechnya during the 1990s and into the following decade, destroying the region’s economy, job market, and civil infrastructure. Since 2000, the economic situation in Chechnya has improved considerably, but humanitarian aid is still vital.
Areas of need in Chechnya:
50% of Chechens live in poverty. (UNICEF, 2017)
200,000 people across the country are internally displaced. (UNICEF, 2017)
We Need YOUR Help
As much as we’ve been able to accomplish, there is still so much more to do. If we work together—with YOU—we can make the vision of a better Chechnya a reality for so many more of our sisters and brothers in need.
$100 can provide food aid for a family
$225 can provide vital relief to emergency survivors
$500 can implement livelihood programs to set up women-led households for success
$1,000 can help build innovative water and sanitation facilities
Islamic Relief was one of the first humanitarian entities to assist Chechens in the wakes of their devastating conflicts. Recently, IRUSA has placed incredible emphasis on providing aid to Chechnya’s orphans and children in need, along with their families. In addition to these projects, IRUSA has also provided Chechen’s with winter relief.
Here’s just a sampling of recent efforts for families in need across Chechnya:
Supporting orphans in need and their families
Delivering urgent food aid to those living in hunger
Providing emergency supplies to help families brace against harsh weather
