Our work in Iraq

Our work in Iraq
Iraq field office for emergency food relief.

More than a decade after the war in Iraq, 2.1 million internally displaced people (IDP) have little hope of returning to their homes due to ongoing conflict. The most vulnerable populations that are in urgent need of humanitarian assistance are located in areas that are difficult to access due to heavy fighting and shelling. Of the 2.1 million Iraqis who have been displaced since December 2013, over 125,000 families currently reside in school buildings, settlements and shelters.  
 
Since the conflict began, Muslim Aid has been actively working with partners on the ground helping over 200,000 IDPs get back on their feet.  Muslim Aid partnered with USAID Iraq and URC US to conduct training sessions on health and hygiene and provided psycho therapy for over 2,500 families.  Over 1,700 emergency aid kits, including water, food and non-food items such as blankets and toiletries were given to IDPs living in shelters. In Sulaimaniyah, an area heavily populated with IDPs, Muslim Aid gave clothing and non-food items to 1,200 displaced families to keep them warm during the winter months. And in Dohuk, 1,500 emergency food parcels were distributed to families. By partnering with local NGO’s and international organisations, Muslim Aid has been able to reach more people in need, with support such as financial assistance and providing water purification units to help communities.

    I am with the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs based in Erbil as GIS Officer. Please, we are seeking for contact information for International NGOs that have an office in Kurdistan region, Iraq. For each INGO we would like to have contact info (name, title/role, phone, email) for just one staff member. Thank you.
