Where we work
Our annual report
Why are we in Iraq? Years of conflict uprooted millions of people, eroded social cohesion, disrupted access to basic services, destroyed livelihoods and led to increased protection risks. With limited progress towards recovery and development, the situation has become protracted and millions of people across Iraq remain in need of humanitarian assistance.
*We are currently responding to the threat of Covid-19 in Iraq. Find out more about our response here.
Recent conflict has created huge humanitarian needs
The most vulnerable people in Iraq are those who are directly affected by the recent neighbouring conflict and are in acute need of humanitarian assistance. Approximately 1.3 million people remain internally displaced, with 4.1 million people in need of some form of humanitarian assistance. Our programmes seek to meet the basic needs displaced people, returning families and female-and-child headed households. These needs include safe and dignified living conditions, access to clean water and access to adequate health and education services. Many are also suffering from poor physical and mental well-being. Now, Covid-19 is having a compounding effect on all of these issues and we have adapted our programmes to respond to this.
Water, Sanitation & Hygiene
Alongside our partner ‘KURDS’, we successfully took over responsibility for the water, sanitation and hygiene management in nine camps for Internally Displaced People (IDPs) with funding from the European Union.
