Our Work

Food Security

To be considered food secure, every person has to have physical and economic access to safe and nutritious food, which is needed for wellbeing and a healthy and active life. REACH has been improving food security of vulnerable people in Iraq since 1997.

Non-Food Items

In situations of displacement, there is always loss of personal property. Very often people flee with little more than the clothes on their backs. In addition to food, people affected by crisis need basic life saving non-food items.

WASH

REACH has a long history and well established reputation in the area of WASH assistance. Each location required different interventions and targeted a wide variety of beneficiaries including IDPs, stayees, returnees and vulnerable members of host communities.

Livelihoods

The provision of Livelihood Assistance is one of the largest areas of intervention REACH implemented in 2018. The reason being the continuous need for economic support and the unfortunate lack of economic opportunities that currently exist throughout the country, in particular for IDPs, Returnees, Refugees and the most vulnerable Host Communities.

Education

REACH’s focus on sustainable community development calls for programming that not only provides emergency relief, but also provide opportunities for individual growth and capacity building. One of the main ways we achieve this is through our Education Assistance projects.

Shelter

As a result of years of conflict, destruction and displacement, Iraq represents a land that requires a lot of rebuilding. Even structures that were not directly impacted by war, often suffer from neglect as governmental institutions have been limited in their ability to keep up with all of the services the population requires.

Multi-Purpose Cash Assistance

REACH’s focus on sustainable community development calls for programming that not only provides emergency relief, but also provide opportunities for individual growth and capacity building. One of the main ways we achieve this is through our Education Assistance projects.

About REACH

Rehabilitation, Education and Community Health (REACH) is one of the oldest non-governmental, non-profit and independent organizations in the Kurdistan region of Northern Iraq. REACH was founded in 1995 by former staff members of Oxfam-UK.

REACH implements long-term sustainable programming, as well as emergency relief interventions throughout the Diyala, Kirkuk, Erbil, Duhok, Ninevah, Salahaddin and Sulaimaniya governorates of Iraq.
