Request for Proposal No.: RFP IQ-002EBL20 -Invitation Letter for Psychosocial Support to DRC National Staff

Dear Sir/Madam:

DRC is present in Iraq since 2003 and has its Coordination Office in Erbil city. DRC operates in Iraq across a large geographic areas:

  • Kurdistan Region of Iraq: Dohuk, Erbil and Sulaymaniyah governorates
  • Federal Iraq: Ninewa, Salah Al Din, Anbar, Diyala, Kerbala, Najaf and Basrah governorates

The mission of DRC is to assist refugees and displaced people, protect their rights and empower them towards a better future. The program spans from emergency response to development assistance, and covers several sectors: protection, economic recovery, shelter and infrastructure, camp management and camp coordination and mine action. In their day to day work staff are confronted to communities in extreme level of poverty, individuals in serious distress as well as occasionally safety and security incidents. All of this combined with the very volatile and unpredictable context in Iraq, and the history of conflict and violence in the country, requires psychosocial support for national staff. DRC Iraq recognizes the challenges that staff are exposed to whilst working in humanitarian contexts and the impacts on staff wellbeing.

The Danish Refugee Council (DRC) has received a grant from various donors for the implementation of the humanitarian aid operation in Iraq. As part of the global people policy of DRC on Well-Being.

  • “We see engagement and commitment as preconditions for good results
  • We strive to develop a good working environment and engaged employees
  • Managers and employees take ownership and work collaboratively to foster a good working environment”
