Barzani Char­ity Foun­da­tion helps IDP

The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS -

Barzani Char­ity Foun­da­tion BCF con­tin­ues to help out the IDPs and refugees in Kur­dis­tan Re­gion and ex­pands its ac­tiv­i­ties day after day.

BCF has been among the first or­ga­ni­za­tions to pro­vide im­me­di­ate as­sis­tance to the IDP from the be­gin­ning of the se­cu­rity cri­sis and the in­flow of IDP into the re­gion.

BCF used to pro­vide var­i­ous aids to dif­fer­ent vul­ner­a­ble groups in Kur­dis­tan, but its hu­man­i­tar­ian aid pro­gram ex­panded sig­nif­i­cantly with the in­flow of hun­dreds of thou­sands of Syr­ian Kur­dish refugees due to the se­cu­rity de­te­ri­o­ra­tions in Syria.

Among their ac­tiv­i­ties at that time were pro­vid­ing meals to tens of thou­sands of refugees in Qush­tapa camp and build­ing a tem­po­rary food­stuff ware­house for the refugees there.

The re­cent in­va­sion of Sin­jar by ISIS pro­duced hun­dreds of thou­sands of IDP in Kur­dis­tan Re­gion.

BCF has been very ac­tively de­liv­er­ing aid to a large num­ber of th­ese peo­ple. Among them, BCF has been pre­par­ing 2 meals for 3,300 Sin­jar IDP in Bahrika, 10 km north­west of Er­bil.

Now as the num­ber of IDP in­creases and new camps are built, the or­ga­ni­za­tion also ex­panded its ac­tiv­i­ties to sup­ply as many of them as pos­si­ble with food and other needs.

In a most re­cent ac­tiv­ity, BCF dis­trib­uted food aid over thou­sands of refugees in Duhok on Wed­nes­day, Septem­ber 3, 2014.

As part of this cam­paign, they dis­trib­uted dry food items over 2000 Yazidi IDP fam­i­lies in Zawita, 10 km east of Duhok. The items in­cluded rice, flour, beans, sugar, cook­ing oil, tomato paste and other sim­i­lar items.

In Shaqlawa, 60 km north of Er­bil, BCF is im­ple­ment­ing a monthly sched­ule for dis­tribut­ing food­stuff over 7,000 IDP fam­i­lies and are cur­rently dis­tribut­ing the sec­ond month sup­plies. Ac­cord­ing to the sched­ule each day, 1500 fam­i­lies get their sup­plies.

The foun­da­tion has of­fices in the majority of the IDP camps across the re­gion to mon­i­tor the sit­u­a­tion of the IDP closely, study their needs and re­spond as re­quired.

BCF op­er­ates un­der the li­cense num­ber 7606, dated Au­gust 4, 2005 from the min­istry of in­te­rior of the Kur­dis­tan Re­gional Gov­ern­ment. BCF head­quar­ters are in Er­bil and it has branches in other ci­ties across the re­gion and even out­side Kur­dis­tan.
