Dova International Charities, Ltd is raising money to address the unusually high rate of suicides occurring in the Refugee Camps in Iraq among the minority youth due to depression & PTSD.
Refugee Children in Iraq are Committing Suicide
There are a higher than usual number of suicides occurring in the Refugee Camps in Iraq among the minority youth populations.
Many Iraqi minority children have been deprived of part of their childhood
They suffer because of the war & violence that devastated their communities and resulted in the loss of many of their family members.
Our goal is the construction of a Gym & Playground Facility
These young Iraqi minorities need a place to gather, to meet others, to engage in fun and fulfilling physical activities which will provide them a greater chance to overcome their trauma and not commit suicide. This facility will offer them a more active and healthy life, giving them hope for the future.

How You Can Help Build Up Hope
Athletic Playing Field We want to ensure that Iraqi minority children have safe designated spaces in the Refugee Camps to enjoy their free time, play sports & express themselves by constructing an athletic field.
Higher Fencing A higher fence is needed to protect the playing field and keep activities contained inside for a safer and more enjoyable playing experience.
Cover the Gym The gym covering will allow for the facility to be used under any weather condition year round.
Please help those children who have lost their family members due to war & violence in Iraq & are suffering from depression & PTSD.
