Able to discuss IRCO's Neighborhood Reconstruction Program to normalize up to 600,000 internally displaced residents of Baghdad into self-sustaining

neighborhoods

WASHINGTON, May 6 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Dr. Said Hakki, president of the Iraqi Red Crescent Organization (IRCO), is in Washington, DC, May 12-16 and available for interviews to discuss the organization's Neighborhood Reconstruction Program (NRP) to immediately assist up to 600,000 Internally Displaced (IDP) residents of Baghdad to resettle themselves in self-sustaining neighborhoods consisting of basic services, health care, schools and employment opportunities.

As noted in a March 15, 2008 report by Refugee's International titled "Uprooted and Unstable: Meeting Urgent Humanitarian Needs in Iraq," Iraq is currently "faced with one of the largest displacement and humanitarian crises in the world" with more than 2 million internally displaced persons "in urgent need of assistance."

The report contends that "as a result of the vacuum created by the failure of both the Iraqi Government and the international community to act in a timely and adequate manner, non-state actors must play a major role in providing assistance to vulnerable Iraqis ... ultimately, only Iraqis can save Iraq."

The Iraqi Red Crescent Organization is a Red Cross affiliated, non- sectarian humanitarian and health organization providing relief to refugees and IDPs and is the only group qualified and prepared to lead a large-scale reconstruction and humanitarian effort. IRCO has the full support of the Government of Iraq, and the GOI has offered to provide matching funds for all approved NRP projects.
