Displaced women and children are especially vulnerable to violence and insecurity and are at the forefront of our work.
Following nearly three decades of conflict, as many as 5 million Iraqis remain displaced inside their own country.
We promote healthy families and women’s well-being by providing health and social services.
We help displaced young people become self-sufficient through livelihoods training.
We provide legal assistance to thousands of returnees and displaced persons.
The IRC rebuilds schools damaged by war, and trains teachers, reaching close to fifty thousand students at 130 Iraqi schools.
More than 2 million people inside Iraq have been uprooted by violent conflict. The IRC is providing clean water, medicine, protection services, relief supplies and emergency financial assistance to the displaced as well as vulnerable locals. In addition, the IRC provides emergency support to thousands of Syrian refugees in northern Iraq, and — since 2003 — those who have fled previous waves of violence in central Iraq.
