Contexte Tdh has been present in Iraq since 2014 with NFI distributions in Dohuk Governorate and in October 2015 launched unconditional cash assistance with the support of Swiss Solidarity. Since these first interventions, Tdh has been present in eleven districts (Anah, Al-Qa’im, Haditha, Tal Afar, West and East Shirqat, Tikrit, Baiji, Hawija, Kirkuk and Tooz) across four Governorates (Salah al-Din, Kirkuk, Nineveh and Al-Anbar) with operations in the two latter districts since 2017 as Tdh followed the frontlines to provide emergency assistance. Tdh was the first INGO to have field offices in Tikrit, Shirqat, Tal Afar and Anah. Tdh’s strategy consists on providing emergency assistance in hard-to-reach for the population strggling to access the services following their return. Furthermore Tdh focuses on recovery efforts to ensure the safe and dignified returns and resumption of necessary services. Tdh’s efforts focus on WASH, Education, Child protection, Juvenile Justice and CCCM sectors and include infrastructure repair, local capacity building as well as direct service provision where needed.
