“Salam Alaikum.” This Arab greeting means „Peace be with you,“ and peace is certainly what the people in Iraq are desperately in need of. War and displacement have affected the lives of the Iraqi people for over a generation. Even though the Islamic State has been defeated militarily, daily life for many Iraqis remains precarious and tense. Iraq possesses a very heterogeneous population of Arabs, Kurds, Christians, Muslims, and Yazidis – divided among several political and armed factions. Although the humanitarian distress has gradually abated, many people lack an essential ingredient in their lives – peace; be it an inner sense of well-being or the healing that comes from reconciliation with former antagonists. This is where Tearfund Germany has found a way to help.
