Tammuz Organization for Social Development

Tammuz Organization for Social Development was founded in northern Iraq in 1997 under the name of the Al-Wafa. In May 2003, the organization opened an office in Baghdad and currently operates six other offices across the country: in Erbil, Thy Qar, Babil, Missan, Basra and Anbar. The organization supports community health, education, vocational training and public consultation programs, and research and evaluation programs. During the electoral process in 2005, Tammuz deploys throughout the country thousands of volunteers who observe the elections and report any breach of the law.
