Project Snapshot


Project Start Date: 1 Oct 2021

Duration: 10 Months

Direct Beneficiaries: 2,130 IDPs, Returnees and Host Communities

Location: West Mosul in Ninewa Governorate, Iraq

Funded by: Japan Platform

As the largest destination for internally displaced people, West Mosul's infrastructure continues to be insufficient to the needs of the population, especially as a lot of it was damaged during the conflict. In addition, West Mosul is one of the most impacted districts by COVID-19. The dual impact of war and COVID-19 has negatively affected thousands of children who are stressed and in need of support. The grant from the Japan Platform will help us contribute to the healthy growth of children in western Mosul by implementing child protection and water, sanitation and hygiene activities in communities and schools and addressing the psychological impact of conflict, violence, and poverty on children.
