Première Urgence Internationale (PUI) is a non-governmental, non-profit, non-political and non-religious international aid organisation. Our teams are committed to supporting civilian victims of marginalisation and exclusion, or hit by natural disasters, wars and economic collapses, by answering their fundamental needs. Our aim is to provide emergency relief to uprooted people in order to help them recover their dignity and regain self-sufficiency. Première Urgence Internationale  relies on 30 years of field experience in 50 countries in crisis, as well as on the complementarity of its medical and non-medical expertise, to adapt its programs to each context and to the real needs of the most vulnerable populations.


The association leads in average 180 projects per year in the following sectors of intervention: food security, health, nutrition, construction and rehabilitation of infrastructures, water, sanitation, hygiene and economic recovery. Première Urgence  Internationale is providing assistance to around 4 million people in 21 countries – in Africa, Asia, Middle East, Eastern Europe, Caucasus and France.




PUI in Iraq:


PUI has been working in Iraq since 1983 implementing emergency and recovery projects aiming at improving the access to health, to water and sanitation, livelihoods, in urban and rural areas. In 2013 in KRI, PUI launched activities targeting Syrian refugees with the deployment of WaSH and Health responses in refugee camps. More recently, PUI started deploying a multi-sector emergency response in Health, Food Security, Shelter/NFI and WaSH both in KRI and in central Iraq.

PUI has implemented both health and livelihood programmes in central Iraq in the past, and is currently implementing Mobile Health Teams in both Baghdad and Najaf.
