After two years, the long awaited military offensive to retake Mosul from Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) began in October 2016. Over one million individuals are expected to be affected by fighting, human rights abuses and displacement in and around Mosul. As we continue through the coldest months of the year there is an urgency to address their immediate humanitarian needs.
Three Alliance2015 members with considerable experience in humanitarian and recovery work in Iraq, ACTED, Welthungerhilfe and consortium leader People in Need, have received funding from EU Humanitarian Aid (ECHO) to provide humanitarian support to 19,600 displaced and conflict-affected men, women and children.
The project was launched beginning of January 2017 and the three partners will begin providing support to the most vulnerable immediately.
Through this ECHO-funded project, the Alliance2015 partners will provide life-saving and much needed assistance to families in three key response areas: protection from the elements, water supply and sanitation, and learning support.
