Where We Work

Iraq

Since 2014, Iraq has been experiencing one of the most severe humanitarian crises of our time. An estimated 1.6 million people were internally displaced persons (IDPS), while approximately 4,3 million people have progressively returned to their place of origin in June. These figures have made it difficult to deliver primary public services and have put the socio-economic conditions of local communities under severe stress.

COOPI is active in Iraq since 2017 with activities aimed at supporting refugees and the host communities in Qayyarah, south of Mosul.

Here, we carry out interventions focused on education in emergency such as psychological support for children suffering from post-conflict trauma and we promote their return to education through the reconstruction and rehabilitation of primary and secondary schools in war-torn areas.

Since 2019, we also implement Water and Sanitation activities, such as the rehabilitation of distribution and purification systems destroyed under ISIS occupation and the dissemination of water- and hygiene-related best practices in the district of Shirqat, in Salah Din Governorate.
