Rebuilding Lives, Building Communities

On April 24th and 27th, the International Organization for Migration (IOM), in collaboration with local government officials and representatives from UN agencies and NGOs, marked the opening of 128 shops and the distribution of 20 motorbikes to beneficiaries in Darashakran Camp and Basirma Camp in northern Iraq.

Funded by the U.S. Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration (PRM) and the government of the Czech Republic, this project was implemented under the auspices of Regional Response Plan 5 and used similar methodology to IOM’s Community Revitalization Program. It aims to enhance the livelihoods of Syrians in refugee camps throughout the Kurdish region of Iraq by helping them gain access to rewarding employment and regular income.
