To: casi-discuss @ lists.casi.org.uk Cc: Jiale Ye <yejiale @ yahoo.com> From: Menno Wiebe Date: 2002/09/29 11:53:03 AM Subj: Aid organizations in Iraq The question was asked about aid organizations having special programmes for Iraq. The Iraqi Red Crescent Society (IRCS) is the primary point of reference for all international aid initiatives in Iraq and both the International Committee for the Red Cross (ICRC) and the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) have active programmes in Iraq. In addition to the Red Cross/Red Crescent movement and the various UN organizations, there are a handful of international non-governmental organizations active in Iraq. The organizations I'm familiar with are (and apologies for those I've forgotten): --Islamic Relief Agency (ISRA) --LIFE for Relief and Development --CARE Iraq (Australia affiliate) --Norwegian Church Aid --Enfants du Monde --Bridges to Baghdad The American Friends Service Committee (AFSC) and the Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) support some projects of the above-named organizations. The AFSC is based in the USA while the MCC is based in both the USA and Canada. Best regards Menno Wiebe Country Representative -- Mennonite Central Committee Jordan [ This email was sent to: email@example.com ] [ On 2002/09/26 08:52:54 AM, Jiale Ye <firstname.lastname@example.org> wrote: ] On a related matter, I wonder if anyone knows whether aid organisations like the Red Cross or the Red Crescent have special programme for Iraq, particularly now that war is imminent? I searched their sites some time ago and did not find anything. Are these aid agencies active in Iraq at all? It would be great if anyone who knows this can let us know so that we can contribute financially.
