PIN mission to Iraq has been established in 2003 in southern Missan province, when the organisation focused on assistance to the displaced population, rehabilitation of schools and health centres or income generation courses. Between 2004 and 2009 the mission was coordinated from Jordan and PINâ€™s focus shifted to civil society development. With its return to Iraqi Kurdistan in 2010, PIN continues to work both in Southern and Northern parts of the country.
