Since 2016, SWEDO has been the biggest implementing partner of UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) in Iraqi Kurdistan. In Erbil, the partnership has meant that the organization now manages the Protection Assistance and Reintegration Centre (PARC) in Erbil, as well as providing Multi-Purpose Cash Assistance (MPCA) across all three governorates, Erbil, Dohuk and Sulaymaniyah. Although these activities, in partnership with UNHCR, have become the cornerstone of SWEDO´s operation in Iraqi Kurdistan, they are by no means the only activities that the organization has been engaged in.
SWEDO has a long history of high quality service provision across Iraq, with past projects focusing on rehabilitating and constructing, health and shelter. In addition to UNHCR these other activities have either been supported or done in partnership with UN World Food Programme (WFP), UN Population Fund, (UNPF) and Syria Recovery Trust Fund (SRTF).
SWEDO’s activities are financed by contributions from our donors. SWEDO’s donors during 2019/2020 are:
