WHAT WE DO IN IRAQ
Cordaid provides primary health care, psychosocial support, gender-based violence prevention, and disability services for internally displaced people, returnees, and host communities in multiple governorates.
We support internally displaced people by providing food, emergency kits to cover first needs, non-food items, protection, hygiene kits and clean drinking water. We also rehabilitate broken or destroyed water units.
Cordaid works with young people from Mosul and Kirkuk to achieve more peace, security and stability in their regions.
Cordaid’s private sector development programme supports businesses and accelerates them in adapting to the needs of the market. We prepare entrepreneurs to become more market-oriented and to build their own businesses by providing sets of professional training courses that improve their entrepreneurial skills.
