Humanitarian context

Years of conflict have resulted in the destruction of much of the country's infrastructure and agricultural resources, displacing more than three million people. After fleeing the war zones from 2014 to 2017, nearly 2 million internally displaced people (IDPs) and 4 million returnees (returning to their home areas) face the same challenge: rebuild and develop livelihoods in a ravaged country.

Access to drinking water and sanitation remains a major problem. 8.7 million people need humanitarian aid according to the UN, the largest number in the regions of Nineveh, Kirkuk and Anbar.


Our actions

SIF intervened from April 2017 in partnership with the Crisis Center of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (CDCS) or UN agencies to distribute emergency aid to displaced people fleeing war zones . Another project was devoted to the reconstruction of basic services.
