Polish Emergency Response Team in Kurdistan

Armed conflict in Iraq has been going on since July 2014. According to the International Organization for Migration, there are around 1.5 million internally displaced persons in the Autonomous Region of Kurdistan. Following a seven-month military operation to retake Mosul (since October 2016), about 700 thousand people have so far been displaced from the city and its peripheries. While most humanitarian organizations focus on aiding Mosul refugees, persons displaced internally in 2014-2016 are in desperate need of humanitarian assistance.

Polish Emergency Response Team in Kurdistan

The aim of the project is to ensure the survival of internally displaced persons, including the most needy women, men and children who have suffered from the conflict in Kurdistan and to offer them a decent life by providing them with quick and necessary in-kind assistance.

The Polish Emergency Aid Team in Kurdistan will regularly check the needs and identify the persons from among the internally displaced people and the local population who need aid the most. They will receive emergency in-kind aid in the form of food parcels, hygienic products and winter amenities, depending on the needs. Under the project, different kinds of aid packages will be put together according to the needs of the beneficiaries and the time of the year. The packages will be purchased once every three months and stored in a storehouse in Irbil. They will be distributed immediately upon request from the coordinating team responsible for identifying the needs.
