Shlama Foundation

Connecting the Diaspora to the Homeland

100% of your donations are spent in the homeland, which means all the project work is done by volunteers there. If you live in northern Iraq and would like to volunteer, let us know! We DO NOT encourage travel at this time for your own safety. As soon as we feel the conditions are safe, Shlama will help coordinate opportunities to visit the region and help there!


We are always open to new ideas that fulfill our mission, vision and values. Let us know what's on your mind. We are always happy to listen! Please note that The Shlama Foundation is not a political or military group, although we are open to working with both as long as it is for humanitarian purposes. The many volunteers of Shlama hold a wide range of views and opinions.

Here are a few ways to get more involved. Please Contact Us if you are interested or have any questions.
