Special Distribution in Facility for Children with Autism

As you might know by now we organise many different distributions. We reach out to the most vulnerable people and try to reach those who otherwise might not get (extra) help. And sometimes places and people we visit during these distributions get a special place in our hearts.


Last week, the 21st of February, was one of those days. Our team on the ground went to visit a facility for children with autism. This facility in Erbil was founded in 2009 and currently holds 31 children. These children often come from families that live below the poverty line. The staff and volunteers of this facility can relate to these families because most of them have a similar background. Being able to relate to these families helps them create the safe space, trust and understanding these children need.



Autism knows a wide spectrum and each child needs individualised care catered to their specific needs and abilities. Fortunately they get this care in this facility. Everyday the staff and volunteers work hard to get the children more independence in their daily life. They do this by teaching them the alphabet, how to read, and how to take care of their personal hygiene. I.e. teaching them how to brush their teeth, wash themselves, etc. However one of the most important things they help the children with is how to function well in a community.


It isn’t always easy to find a suitable way to help but in this case it wasn’t hard to figure out. We provided all children with their own package filled with hygiene products. Because the facility has a limited budget this distribution was very much welcome. We also made sure all children got toys. Most parents don’t have the money for toys due to the fact that they have to spend the little money they have on care for their child(ren). Toys have become a luxury item. And, just like any other child in the world would be, they were incredibly excited to receive toys.

Our team was impressed by the camaraderie and sense of community they felt during this visit. It shows how much dedication and love the staff and volunteers have. That’s why we plan another distribution for the people who work in this facility. We want to help them in any way possible.
