Originally published
International Aid is mobilized and committed to helping the Iraqi refugees. In fact, Myles Fish, President of International Aid, is in Jordan today to finalize plans and logistics for the support of the refugees. International Aid wants to make sure that the supplies are received and distributed properly. International Aid will be shipping medicine, and a medical clinic, a water filtering system, and supplies including tents blankets and food.
Our recent experience in Afghanistan and Kosovo taught us that the people that suffer the most are often the children and young mothers in refugee camps. Providing basic needs is the first step to rebuild the region. International Aid would very much appreciate your prayers and support in this effort.

Please Note: International Aid is only allowed to ship NEW products into the Middle East.

What happens if there is no war?

We are praying for peace, and if our prayers are answered and there is no war, International Aid will use these products and funding for other needy people around the world. However, it should be noted that there are already more than 400,000 refugees in Jordan, so most likely we will be sending your relief items to refugees somewhere in the Middle East.
