About our organization

 

Our mission:
IAIR is a non-profit organisation that exists to help Iraqi refugees and displaced. Our work is aimed at assisting needy Iraqis, by providing sustenance, health support, education support, and information services.
Our services are aimed to relieve poverty amongst the Iraqi refugee in Syria and Egypt. Due to the displacement crisis sparked by the US-led war of March 2003 and the ensuing and on-going violence, the refugee problem continues to escalate.
Poverty and their insecure legal status are main causes for families not sending their children to schools. Complex registration procedures and administrative requirements as well as cases of children being downgraded to lower classes are also contributing. Medical support is inconsistent.

 

Aims & Objectives
We help the needy families regardless of their race, ethnic origin, language, and gender, religious or political background. To improve access and quality of services in the areas of health, education and protection. Prevention-related work is ongoing to protect children from violence and exploitation (child labour and sexual exploitation).
