Judy Organization for Relief and Development collaborated with the International Committee for Missing Persons (ICMP) to collect and analyze data on missing persons from war-torn Syria. Operating in Duhok and Erbil, field teams reached out to families affected by the conflict to conduct surveys, gathering vital information to aid in identifying the missing.
Using advanced methodologies endorsed by the International Organization for Missing Persons, this initiative aimed to create a comprehensive database of missing Syrians. Sharing this data with civil and governmental authorities supported ongoing research and investigations into missing persons cases.
Spanning from 2020 to 2022, the projects focused on Erbil and Duhok, key areas in Iraq’s Kurdistan Region where large camps shelter Syrian refugees. Funded by the United Kingdom (UK) and in partnership with ICMP, this initiative provides crucial assistance to affected families and supports investigations into missing Syrians.
This proactive approach aids governmental and related organizations, significantly contributing to global efforts in investigating missing persons cases and offering justice and relief to affected families.
