TRANSITIONAL ASSISTANCE TO INTERNALLY DISPLACED PERSONS IN ERBIL

Irak

Titre : TRANSITIONAL ASSISTANCE TO INTERNALLY DISPLACED PERSONS IN ERBIL

Pays : Irak
Localisation : Erbil

Durée : October 2019 - March 2022

Contexte : The violent multi-year occupation of the so-called Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) in the north of Iraq forced many of the religious and ethnic minority groups to flee to Erbil in the Iraqi Kurdistan region and elsewhere. Many families suddenly found themselves without shelter and in desperate need for assistance. The Chaldean Archdiocese of Erbil was one of the first to response. During a 2018 speech, His Excellency Archbishop Bashar Warda of the Chaldean Catholic Archdiocese of Erbil, acknowledged the importance of religious tolerance and freedom for Iraq’s long-term stability : “How does our land overcome the endless cycle of persecution and violence that repeat themselves with regular horror to all of us ? The harsh truth to this question is that without an end to this persecution and violence, there is no future for religious pluralism in Iraq, or anywhere else in the Middle East for that matter”. Ensuring the sustainable reintegration of internally displaced persons (IDPs) in northern Iraq requires a combination of direct assistance to those in need while developing the capacity of local organizations to provide in longer-term service delivery.

The second year of the project will focus on building the organizational capacity of the Archdiocese of Erbil’s new non-governmental organization, the Ankawa Humanitarian Committee (AHC).
