A humanitarian disaster is looming in Iraq’s southern city of Basra, the Red Cross has warned. Water and electricity supplies to the country’s second city have been cut off for more than two days. Coalition forces have carried out air strikes on Basra and are holding land positions outside the city.
The Iraqi people will need our assistance to rebuild their lives and to create new institutions for democratic civil society in the aftermath of war. Please contribute generously to this emergency fund. All proceeds will be granted to non-profit groups working to rebuild Iraq and assist the victims of war.
