Where we are

Since 1991 SWEDO has had a presence in Iraq. Today we operate in three countries – Iraq, Jordan and Syria. Also making our way to Palestine.

Since the beginning of SWEDO´s humanitarian efforts in 1991, we have remained loyal to our promise and never left the region. Both in times of armed conflict as well as during peace to rebuild the devastated rural and urban areas. 
The undisrupted, local presence in the Middle East is what makes us stand out among other aid organizations. This has been made possible through the organization mainly consisting of native personnel from areas of operations and regional experts. 
 
SWEDO´s head office is located in Stockholm, Sweden, whilst our operations in the Middle East are led from Country Management Offices (CMO) based in Erbil in Iraq and Amman in Jordan.   
 
SWEDO currently have 11 offices in three countries: Iraq, Syria and Jordan, with ongoing projects in Raqqa, Duhok, Erbil, Diyala and Sulaymanyah.
