We launched our first humanitarian aid programme in Iraq in 2003 in response to the crisis caused by the war in the country. In 2016, we opened our local office in Erbil with the objective to support returning families and internally displaced persons through humanitarian and development programmes.

In the past years, we have offered breakout opportunities through a number of large-scale and long-term programmes to those who were in a difficult situation as a result of the war.

We carry out our activities in Iraq under the supervision of our Hungarian head office, through the Erbil-based humanitarian local office, in cooperation with Hungarian staff seconded to the field, as well as with local staff, experts and local partners.
