The FUTURE Care Program is a service that provides humanitarian aid items sent from neighborhoods in the United States to neighborhoods in Iraq and are organized, assembled, and distributed through the "Women for Future - Iraq" organization. This program uses the model of voluntarism and promotes ownership, problem solving, self-reliance, and community building in a non-threatening manner. Through the "Family Guide" program, "Women for Future - Iraq" will identify neighborhoods and communities with their specific needs. FUTURE will then coordinate the collection and shipment of humanitarian aid tailored to meet those needs. Click on how can I help.

















FUTURE in partnership with "OPERATION GIVE", a U.S. based non-profit organization, www.OperationGive.org, will store and transport humanitarian aid to Baghdad, Iraq. The items will then be distributed through the "Women for Future - Iraq" organization and will ensure that this aid is received by the intended recipients. To begin this process, many needs of the Iraqi women have previously been identified through feedback received from the visiting Iraqi women delegates during our previous leadership conferences in the United States. These items include supplies for assembling new born kits, personal hygiene kits, school kits, and other needs. This highly organized effort will ensure that the intended recipients get the supplies designated for them. This is accomplished because each container of goods will be earmarked for a particular neighborhood and community and can be easily tracked. The leadership of "Women for Future - Iraq" is excited about this strong organizational model that promotes accountability and service.
