Founding Ankawa Humanitarian Committee (AHC)


Chaldean Archdiocese of Erbil Represented by His Excellency Chaldean Archbishop Bashar Warda founded Ankawa Humanitarian Committee (AHC) as a legal representative NGO to carry and expand the Archdiocese’s humanitarian and developmental work and reach out to national and international donors.

AHC hopes to expand on the Archdiocese’s activities to reach all vulnerable people that struggle to survive in Iraq.

United States Agency for International Development (USAID) responded by providing direct support to AHC. USAID support enhances AHC’s organizational management and capacity building, by building strong foundational capacity, AHC will be able to deliver support and implement future U.S. government (USG) or other donor-funded relief programs.

USAID support is a crucial aspect of AHC’s organizational and capacity building and development.
