Arwa Damon Explains

INARA provides life-altering medical care for children from conflict areas who have catastrophic injuries or illnesses and are unable to access treatment due to war.

INARA helps war wounded children when no one else can.
We match children to the medical care that they need.
We can’t change their past.
But we can help build a healthier future.

Inara, in HittiteHurrian mythology, was the goddess of the wild animals of the steppe and daughter of the Storm-god Teshub/Tarhunt.[1] She corresponds to the “potnia theron” of Greek mythology, better known as Artemis. Inara’s mother is probably Hebat and her brother is Sarruma.” —Wikipedia
