The armed conflict between the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) and the Iraqi government and its allies triggered a major humanitarian crisis, contributing to human rights and gender equality deterioration. Millions of people are internally displaced and/or need humanitarian assistance. Minority groups such as Christians and Yazidis are also seriously affected due to pre-existing deep-rooted discrimination.
In 2022, Fight for Humanity will begin work in collaboration with the Public Health Organization (P.H.O) on a project based on building social cohesion between different social groups in Iraq. While only a supporting NGO in the project we will be providing our expertise to the creation of agreements in post-conflict situations. The project aims to result in the creation of a strong community mechanism for sustainable peace and social cohesion through a focus on the participation of local actors including various civil groups, social groups, civilians, and police forces.
