Hersh's Story

Hersh Musa Ad joined the World Orphans team as Iraq Country Director in 2012. Hersh is a hard worker, often found working late hours, but he’ll tell you that he loves what he does. As our Project Manager in Iraq, Hersh has managed the construction of the community center, soccer field, refugee camps, and is currently assisting with the building of the school. In this role, he cares for refugees, war widows, and the orphans of Soran. When he’s not pouring his heart and soul into his work, you may find Hersh studying a new language, exploring other cultures, or taking a nature hike.
