Give now to send food, water, and medicine to families on the run from ISIS.
$65 feeds a family for a month.
The battle for Mosul—the largest ISIS stronghold in Iraq—is here. Thousands of families are caught up in the conflict. Many of them will never reach the safety of a refugee camp. So we are going to them—right on the front lines with ISIS—bringing food, water, and medical care to desperate families.
Give now—and save lives on the front lines.
Iraqi forces in Mosul are fighting street by street, block by block. ISIS is still in control just blocks away from where we distributed 500,000 pounds of food today—enough to feed 27,000 people for a month.
Our team is inside Mosul today, just blocks from where Iraqi forces are battling ISIS. Stay tuned for more updates.
While taking sniper and mortar fire from ISIS, we delivered food to hundreds of families in Bawiza, about a mile north of the Mosul city line. The area around Bawiza is not fully liberated from ISIS yet, and the desperation we witnessed here was unlike anything else we've seen. Read more...
We distributed food for nearly 7,000 people in Hammam al-Alil, a town held by ISIS until just days earlier, where a mass grave was recently uncovered. Before we arrived, these families had received nothing, apart from a few basic rations from Iraqi forces. Read more...
We opened a new hospitality center where just-liberated families can take shelter, get food, and receive medical care while they wait to be screened by Iraqi security forces.
A few miles south of Mosul, we opened a warehouse to stage emergency food and water for families in the Mosul conflict zone—in a building that just weeks ago served as an ISIS bomb making factory. By storying food inside the Mosul corridor, we'll be able to respond even more quickly to families' most urgent needs.
As the battle moves closer to Mosul, Iraqi forces are relocating a key screening point for fleeing families, 20 miles closer to the front lines. We are moving resources to the new screening point as well, so we can greet families as soon as they are liberated. We are also positioning 30,000 ready-to-eat meals for families who arrive at the new checkpoint.
We brought food to families in a village on the eastern Mosul front, very close to the front line. The eastern front has seen significant displacement, with an estimated 1,200 families fleeing in the last 24 to 48 hours.
Preemptive Love distributed long-lasting food packets to 800 families in a newly liberated village, just south of Mosul. Until today, the families in this village had received almost no food or medication since ISIS was driven out.
We prepared another 2,000 food packages and 2,000 hygiene kits for families fleeing Mosul. Earlier today, our team completed an assessment of three refugee camps south of Mosul. Officials expect displaced families to flood into these camps, possibly within the next 24-48 hours.

Preemptive Love was the first group to reach the town of Al-Shirqat after it was liberated from ISIS on September 22. We provided 100,000 pounds of food for 12,000 people, along with 1,000 family hygiene kits.
We set up a medical tent at a security checkpoint south of Mosul. Many of the refugees who reach this checkpoint are suffering dehydration and hunger. Some have been tortured by ISIS and require urgent medical care. Our team is providing medicine and supplies, treating 12-80 people every day. Read more...
Today our team traveled along the front lines to deliver food to 200 newly liberated families from the town of Qayyarah, about 40 miles south of Mosul. Read more...
Preemptive Love set up tents and bathrooms for fleeing families at a busy checkpoint in the Mosul corridor. Previously, families had no place to escape the desert heat while waiting—often hours or days—to be cleared by security. They had nowhere to go the bathroom in privacy and dignity. These tents and bathrooms will serve 30,000 people in the coming weeks.
We delivered wheelchairs and crutches to disabled children and elderly refugees fleeing the Mosul corridor. Read more...
Our team rushed medical aid to a refugee center near Tikrit, halfway between Mosul and Baghdad, hours after it was hit by an ISIS mortar attack, killing 13 and injuring dozens. Read more...
We employed local welders to install 10 water tanks in three communities along the Mosul corridor where displaced families have settled. The tanks were connected to municipal water supplies, ensuring a constant, sustainable source of water for those who fled. Read more...
