Outraged by the injustice faced by people with disabilities and vulnerable populations, we aspire to a world of solidarity and inclusion, enriched by our differences, where everyone can live in dignity.
Handicap International is an independent and impartial aid and development organisation working in situations of poverty and exclusion, conflict and disaster. We work alongside disabled and vulnerable people to help meet their essential needs, improve their living conditions and promote respect for their dignity and fundamental rights.

Present in more than 55 countries, Handicap International is composed of 2 operational directions:
– The Direction of Humanitarian Action (DAH)
– The Direction of Development Action (DAD)


Handicap International (HI) started its activities in Iraq in 1991 Since the offensives of the group Islamic State (IS) in 2014, Iraq has been facing an internal armed conflict and a double humanitarian crisis, with high numbers of Iraqi internally-displaced people (IDPs) and Syrian refugees in need of humanitarian assistance. In 2015 the ongoing armed clashes have caused further waves of displacement. In January 2016, there were 3,290,000 recorded IDPs and 245,000 Syrian refugees in Iraq.
Access to the displaced populations remains the main challenge. Most of the IDPs have settled out of the camps (both in urban and rural areas), are widely spread and move frequently among different host communities. In addition, Conventional Weapons (CWs) and Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) continue to impose a devastating human toll in Iraq. In contaminated areas, local populations, IDPs and returning populations are all at risk of death and injury. It is estimated that an average of 324 IED incidents occur on a monthly basis.
Kirkuk governorate is currently hosting around 380,000 IDPs; most of them have received little humanitarian assistance during 2014 and the first half of 2015, in part due to access and security concerns for humanitarian actors. The presence of active frontlines in the governorate is a major source of new displacements as well as of increased contamination with Conventional Weapons (CW) and Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs).

HI has currently four offices in Iraq:
-Erbil coordination office -Kirkuk field office (covering Kirkuk governorate)- Mosul office (currently operating in remote from Erbil) -Khanaqin field office and Suleymaniyeh support office
