According to the United Nations, Iraq is struggling with one of the largest internally displaced populations in the world where an estimated 1.8 million people are displaced at the hands of the extremist insurgent group known as ISIS (Da’esh).
On 8 November 2013, when category 5 Typhoon Haiyan, locally known as Yolanda, hit the Philippines, it caused extensive damage to housing, livelihoods and infrastructure across nine of the country’s poorest provinces.
The World Federation’s PHILIPPINES TYPHOON APPEAL was set up to help victims of the disaster. After consultation with local organisations, The World Federation was able to target and focus on employment and job creation as the most pressing areas of need in the region.
Thanks to the support of donors from around the world, The World Federation was able to contribute USD 15,000 towards providing training in carpentry and small business recovery programs. Alhamdulillah, with your help, we were able to train 125 workers in woodwork skills and provide 25 small businesses with cash grants.

All over the world, innocent children are suffering in one way or another. Some are starving. Some have no families. Some are homeless and have no safe place to sleep at night. They live in a state of constant fear and unhappiness.
In March 2013, The World Federation launched the ‘Pakistan Genocide Appeal’ to raise awareness about and donations to care for victims and families of targeted killings in Pakistan.
