Dear Mike and list members, I suggest the following charities, 1. Jubileeiraq @yahoogroups.co.uk Contact, Justin@Jubileeiraq.org or Justinalexander@yahoo.com www.Jubileeiraq.org This is a fairly new and commendable charity set up by some Casi members here in the U.k. As charity begins at home and as it is an offspring of CASI, it deserves some inheritance from its parent charity. 2. email@example.com Contact, firstname.lastname@example.org This charity has been operating in Iraqi Kurdistan, where it has many projects, for a few years and has now opened offices in Baghdad and further south. 3. Mines Advisory Group,MAG, has been operating in Iraqi Kurdistan ever since the first Gulf War and will no doubt be needed all over Iraq. http://www.mag.org.uk/magtest/deadlygame/all.htm Regards, Muhamad >>> "Mike Lewis" <email@example.com> 06/24 12:25 pm >>> [ Presenting plain-text part of multi-format email ] Dear list, The CASI committee are currently investigating which Iraqi charities it would be most effective to donate CASI's post-sanctions funds to, in accordance with the requirements of CASI's constitution. We're drawing up a shortlist before making some recommendations. Our (very!) basic criteria are: - effectiveness - flexibility in responding to changing needs - Prior experience in Iraq - Using local human resources and expertise - Making efforts to act independently of political or military pressure from occupying powers We're keen to donate directly to Iraqi charities and organisations, as a contribution to institution-building. There was a thread on casi-discuss some weeks ago regarding this, in which various people suggested MAIC (Medical Aid for Iraqi Children), Care Iraqu, and the Human Relief Foundation. We could only find contact details for MAIC and HRF, and could not ascertain whether MAIC was still working in Iraq. Do any list members have: - information about these charities' current activities in Iraq, and/or contact details for them - suggestions of other Iraqi organisations which are doing important and effective humanitarian work - suggestions about important areas which should be focussed upon, based upon list members' knowledge of current humanitarian needs Many thanks, Mike Lewis CASI Committee _______________________________________________ Sent via the discussion list of the Campaign Against Sanctions on Iraq.
