Building sustainable futures in Iraq

In 2014, World Vision established its operations in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq, an autonomous region in the northern part of the country. The protracted conflict with ISIS in the region has caused millions to flee their homes. The conflict plus political instability and low oil prices have derailed the economy and left many families in precarious situations.

World Vision supporters, along with the Government of Canada, are providing essential, life-sustaining necessities to more than 200,000 internally displaced people in the region. We support families and children in Iraq with much needed cash assistance and winter kits to help them get through the coldest months.

Together, we're making real change in the lives of children, families and communities. Just some of what was achieved with Canadian support in the past year:
