Bring Hope Humanitarian Foundation was founded in 2015 in Malmö, Sweden and Northern Iraq. Bring Hope was created as a response to the increased need for aid for millions of displaced people who were forced to migrate into Iraqi Kurdistan attempting to flee from the ISIS incursion, its subsequent torture, and resulting starvation -- arriving any way possible, many on foot. Since our inception, we have expanded our operations to include durable development programmes run on the ground in Northern Iraq, and delivered aid to countries across the Middle East, Asia and Africa. We are now registered in eight countries, including Sweden (our HQ), Iraq (our field office), the U.S.A., the United Kingdom, U.A.E., Switzerland, and Hong Kong.
As an organisation, we value partnership. We are proud to have built productive partnerships with donation, logistics, distribution and institutional partners, including multinational corporations, government agencies, NGOs, advisory groups, local groups and grassroots organisations. Our partners are not only international but locally based, ensuring that we work collaboratively with active participation both from and in close proximity to communities we serve, mobilising vital expertise and facilitating local empowerment. We recognise the staying power that local, grassroots organisations have within communities, and acknowledge that long-lasting commitment to local issues most often comes from community-embedded organisations. Our partnerships provide us with a strong foundation upon which we are able to maximise our impact.
We are proud to have reached over 2.2m people through our aid donations since beginning our operations in 2015, delivering over 138m USD of humanitarian and medical aid items to communities among others, in Iraq, Sierra Leone, Lesotho, Kenya, Nigeria, Republic of Congo, Guinea, Pakistan, Lebanon and Bangladesh.
