DhK – Dortmunder helfen in Kooperation e. V. – is a non-profit organisation that has been supporting people in Northern Iraq / Kurdistan since 1991 . Citizens of Dortmund including Kurdish people who had left their home country and were now living in Dortmund founded DhK as an initiative for the reconstruction of villages in Northern Iraq whose inhabitants had fled their homes during Gulf War I.
In response to each new emergency that occurred in the project region DhK developed new programmes:
- Village Development Center
- Emergency Help for Refugees
- Scholarship programme for displaced students
- Initiative and support for the Study program for Planners at the University of Duhok
In this section we will regularly inform you about current developments in the project region and about the activities of DhK.
The new Letter to our Supporters is now online (Dankesbrief_2019, in German only).
