Country: Iraq, based in Mosul


Iraq faces a double crisis since the beginning of 2014. After the arrival of nearly 250,000 Syrian refugees in 2013, the multiple offensives of ISIS have caused the displacement of more than three million people across the country. In the summer of 2014, attacks on Mosul and the Sinjar region pushed hundreds of thousands of people into Iraqi Kurdistan. In the space of a few weeks, more than 800,000 people have found refuge in the three governorates of the region (Dohuk, Erbil and Sulaymaniyah). The humanitarian aid in Iraqi Kurdistan has thus become one of the major challenge for NGOs.
