  Top stars make charity record for Iraqi kids
Updated 21 April 2003, 10.55
Money from the album will help Iraqi kids
Stars like Avril Lavigne and Lee Ryan from Blue have given songs for free for a charity CD that will help kids in Iraq.

Around two million children in Iraq are suffering because they don't have enough food or medicine, and lots of others are really scared and worried.

People from the charity War Child have been into Iraq to find out what the money is needed for, and have already started to fix an orphanage that was looted.

None of the stars involved are being paid for their work, and record company London have agreed to make the album - called Hope - for nothing too.

It's not the first album the charity have made to help kids who have been affected by a war in their country.

In 1995 more than 1m was raised to help children in Bosnia when 20 artists worked together on album called Help.

Meanwhile, the man given the job of rebuilding Iraq has arrived in Baghdad but says he's definitely not there to rule the country.

Retired US general Jay Garner said his team will stay "as long as it takes."

And he said: "The new ruler of Iraq will be an Iraqi."
