AMAR International is IBBC’s charity of choice. AMAR has been rebuilding and improving the lives of some of the world’s poorest and most disadvantaged people for the last 35 years.

AMAR is also providing training and healthcare to people in Basra.

Since 2007, AMAR medical staff have carried out over 10,500,000 medical consultations and given over 1,000,000 vaccinations.
