    Background

    People in Need (PIN) is an international, non-profit organization providing humanitarian and development assistance in over 20 countries worldwide. Formed in 1992 in the Czech Republic, PIN has grown to be the biggest organisation of its kind in post-communist Europe, providing relief where it is needed, and empowering civil society at home and abroad.

    PIN maintains a strong presence in Iraq and has gradually extended its activities across the Governorates of Ninawa, Salah Al-din, Kirkuk and the Kurdistan Region of Iraq. Typical recipients of our aid are internally displaced persons, returnees, and people who survived the fighting near their homes and meet the pre-defined vulnerability criteria.

    Apart from humanitarian aid, PIN is currently working on long-term programs supporting restoring livelihoods, education, access to water and hygiene. These programs should facilitate people´s return to their original homes and support the stabilisation process after the defeat and removal of ISIS.
