Governorates through its own field staff and, exceptionally,
local partners.

The overall supervision and mentoring of the mission is
performed by CCR’s Head of Mission based in Erbil. The
Mission team is supported from Prague HQ by Regional
Manager, Financial Coordinator and Desk Officer.
CCR has successfully implemented a number of projects

Place), in addition to projects supported by Secours
Catholique-Caritas France, the French Ministry of Europe
and Foreign Affairs, the UN HABITAT, the UN OCHA, the
