In October 2016, after the commencement of the coalition offensive and the reclamation of the first few neighborhoods in Nineveh province, over 3000 families (18,000 individuals) benefited from RNVDO’s first-line food security response.  

RNVDO continued to meet the urgent needs of the population in joint partnership with OCHA via IHPF, NRC, Cordaid, Polish Humanitarian Aid (PAH), Islamic Relief France (SIF), Caritas Chezh Republic, FOCSIV, Christian Aid Ministries, Mercy Corps, Oxfam, and Samaritan’s Purse. 

RNVDO provided operations and logistics support to the partners, including monitoring support, and distributed Rapid Response Mechanism kits, NFI kits, Sawyer water filters, hygiene kits, baby diapers, fuel, dry food parcels, and summer kits.
