On May 1, War Child—an international development organization that helps children affected by war—published a report entitled “Mission Unaccomplished,” a glimpse into what Iraq looks like 10 years after America announced its “Mission Accomplished.”
“Mission Unaccomplished” tells the story of Iraq now, after the military journalists and humanitarian aid groups have gone home. Although years of violence, sanctions, and instability continue to affect the lives of Iraqi children, global assistance has declined from $20 billion to $1.5 billion since 2005.
The CEO of War Child, Rob Williams, calls Iraq a “forgotten crisis.”
The report shows us what we’re up against, and like War Child, we are committed to recovery. War Child works for the day when all children have access to education, life skills training, basic human rights, and protection; we work for the day when all children have access to lifesaving heart surgery.
