Basma Fakri, Iraq Foundation Executive Director, invited Iraqi MP Vian Dakhil to IF’s office in Washington, DC.  Ms. Dakhil was briefed on the foundation’s projects in Iraq by the IF team.  Ms. Dakhil and Ms. Fakri discussed methods of collaboration to aid IDPs and especially Yezidi women. Ms. Dakhil shared crucial information about her meetings with Yezidi women survivors and suggested aiding them through psychological therapy and rehabilitation programs.  Ms. Dakhil thanked IF for the invitation and welcomed the idea of working together to help alleviate the suffering of IDPs in Iraq.

The Iraq Foundation congratulates Ms. Suhaila Al-Asadi, our senior Project Manager in Iraq, on 10 years with the Iraq Foundation. Ms. Al-Asadi, a lawyer, is an expert on women’s issues, and has successfully led many of IF’s women-related projects, as well as projects on constitutional and human rights, accountability, and the judiciary. Her professionalism and high level of performance have commanded universal respect and helped the Foundation excel. Thank you Suhaila, and we hope to work together for the next 10 years to serve Iraq.


The staff of the Iraq Foundation is deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Sayed Mohammed Bahrul Ulum. He was a true Iraqi patriot, a man of deep learning and enlightenment, and a wonderful story-teller who believed in friendship. His efforts to help lead Iraq towards a brighter future were an inspiration to many.
