This will enable IFIR to expand its work and to support Internally Displaced People (IPDs) in the capital of Iraq, Baghdad. .There are approximately 3,400 million internally displaced people in Iraq, 10% of them are based in Baghdad. Many of them are living in camps and are struggling to meet basic needs such as food, shelter; few if the IDPs are able to work which has tremendously impacted their life and safety
The International Federation of Iraqi Refugees (IFIR) which has been working since 1993 to respond to the needs and demands of Iraqi refugees many who have been forced to flee Iraq and seek refuge in European countries.
