WAHA launched in November 2015 its first exploratory mission in Iraqi Kurdistan, in the region of Sinjar Mountains, and in the city of Snuny. The purpose of our actions is to strengthen health systems and to provide ambulances. We work especially in Snuny hospital, focusing on the care of women and children who fled conflict zones.

Since the invasion led by US troops in 2003, Iraq has had not resolved cycle of violence. Since early 2014, the intervention of extremist Sunni Islamist group Islamic State has again plunged much of the country into chaos, and urged civilians to leave their homes, especially in the north.

In addition, a mobile team provides primary health care in the region of Sinjar. A semi-fixed clinic is also in place in the Sinjar mountain to offer women and children regular consultations. In Qadya finally, we provide maternal health care in a camp for displaced Yezidi.
