IR in Iraq
Islamic Relief started its operations in Iraq in April 1996, when a mission visited the country for the first time to assess the humanitarian situation and implement a food distribution programme. It went on to implement three major relief projects, the Leukaemia Treatment Project, the Hospital Hygiene Project and the Food Aid Programme, which has, over the years, supplied food to over 200,000.
In 1998 Islamic Relief began studying other possible options of intervention such as rehabilitation of schools, hospitals and water treatment plants.
