The Need

The needs are great. Nearly 1,000,000 orphans and a similar number of widows in that region of the world. In that culture, their status means that they have no community. The Christian churches in Iraq are on the front lines serving the “least of these.” Orphans of War is working with the churches and other indigenous groups to bring help where it’s most needed, establishing clinics, dental and medical facilities, arranging for humanitarian aid distribution, trauma care, legal intervention for children in detention, and intervention for street and trafficked children.

“There are nearly 1,000,000 orphans and a similar number of widows in that region of the world.”

— Jonathan Webb, FOUNDER

Orphans of War seeks to provide God’s hope & love for children of war by addressing their spiritual, physical, and emotional needs, and by providing opportunities for restoration and reconciliation. Our desire is to encourage and empower the church to support not only children affected by war, but also their families and communities. In all of our work, we strive to be diligent stewards of God’s resources, talents, skills, and treasures.

Our Mission

Jonathan Webb, Founder and President

Jonathan has been working in conflict areas since first going to Iraq as an Army soldier in 2003. God touched his heart when he saw the victims of the conflict suffer — he was haunted by a question: “How do I love my enemies”? Seeking to be obedient, Jonathan began to look for ways to serve the Iraqi people. First in small things, then the projects began to grow. Not seeking to take credit or earn notoriety for himself, but hoping to build the local church and community, has opened remarkable doors. In the process he has earned the confidence and trust of Iraqi government and religious leaders as well as those Orphans of War is serving. Jonathan believes we can accomplish anything if we don’t care who takes the credit — and his walk of faith is bringing hope to a beleaguered part of the world. Won’t you join us? Go To…..
