10 years of destruction and bloodshed. Anniversary of the Syrian Civil War

From March 15, 2011, until today, in front of our eyes, over half a million people in one country have died and 13 million have lost their family homes. 40% of Syria is razed to the ground, and the material damage is greater than in Poland after World War II. The drama of millions of people cannot be expressed in words - the armed conflict has affected absolutely every family in Syria, a country where the bloodiest war of this century is taking place.

PCPM trains local authorities in Iraqi Kurdistan

Nowadays in Kurdistan we can observe a strong attitude of “teach a man to fish” regarding local citizens. After defeating the so-called Islamic State, it is finally possible. The situation in Northern Iraq is stabilizing. However, the process of achieving fully independence is not easy, due to the negative impact of financial crisis in 2014, provoked by low oil prices and investment outflow. PCPM actions support local governmental institutions in raising funds for the most important tasks.
