Following the expulsion of the Islamic State (IS) from major areas of Iraq in 2017, HEKS/EPER decided to further assess needs to support returnees in the Ninewa province (Sinjar) and identify potential intervention for returnees in Diyala province (Jalawla) and Salah Al Din Province (Tuz). In order to further develop its intervention strategy and geographical presence, HEKS/EPER requested the support of Agency RED to assist it in its work, assessing the needs in terms of livelihood in urban and rural areas and suggesting locations and approaches where the organisation could become active in 2018 and beyond.
