Korek Tele­com con­tin­u­ously strug­gles to ex­pand its hu­man­i­tar­ian as­sis­tance and ef­forts to help the IDP who have be­come the vic­tim of the re­cent se­cu­rity is­sues through­out Iraq.

Korek sup­ports and spon­sors var­i­ous civil so­ci­ety in­sti­tu­tions in dif­fer­ent parts of Iraq. It makes th­ese at­tempts pos­si­ble by us­ing its com­mu­ni­ca­tion tech­nol­ogy, which in turn helps both the cus­tomers and those who wish to help and do­nate. In or­der to con­trib­ute in the hu­man­i­tar­ian tasks, Korek has re­cently in­tro­duced a new method to col­lect do­na­tion from its users for the IDP in Iraq. For users who want to send their con­tri­bu­tions, all they have to do is to send an empty short text mes­sage (SMS) to the pro­vided code (2999) which cost them only (1,200) IQD for each text. The first part of this do­na­tion has been pub­licly given to Barzani Char­ity Foun­da­tion and Iraqi Red Cres­cent on Septem­ber 10, 2014. Both or­ga­ni­za­tions will then di­rectly dis­trib­ute the rev- enues of this con­tri­bu­tion among IDP all over Iraq.

Dur­ing the cer­e­mony of hand­ing over the do­na­tion col­lected from Korek users’ SMS to the or­ga­niza- tions, Korek thanked all the par­tic­i­pants who have reached out their con­tri­bu­tion through SMS and en­cour­aged other users to do the same. It also ex­tended grat­i­tude to its staff mem­bers who have con­trib­uted with their salary to help the IDP. After that, both Barzani Char­ity Foun­da­tion and Iraqi Red Cres­cent highly ap­pre­ci­ated Korek’s new at­tempt to help the IDP.

Korek hu­man­i­tar­ian aid cam­paigns started on Au­gust 11, 2014 and it is still on­go­ing. Hun­dreds of tons of ba­sic needs and tents have been dis­trib­uted among the IDP in dif­fer­ent prov­inces in Iraq like Sin­jar, Makhmuor, Kirkuk, Mo­sul, Tala­far. The dis­tri­bu­tion cam­paigns were sup­ported by Town­ship Direc­tors, rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the churches, re­li­gious in­sti­tu­tions, and in­ter­na­tional and civil so­ci­ety or­ga­ni­za­tions.

The Korek staff al­ways does their best to make sure that they de­liver hu­man­i­tar­ian as­sis­tance to the IDP all over Iraq with­out any dis­crim­i­na­tion. Korek strongly be­lieves in sup­port­ing the IDP and it has been striv­ing to help those who have left their homes as re­sult of the cur­rent se­cu­rity cri­sis.
