Tearfund have over forty years' experience of responding to the emergency of disasters: floods, earthquakes, tsunamis, typhoons, and the misery caused by slow-onset disasters such as food crises or conflict. We implement Tearfund disaster response teams and respond directly in situations of overwhelming need, where there are no local partners, or where the scale of the emergency is too great for our partners’ capacity. Tearfund are recognised for expertise in disaster response. We're signatories of the Code of Conduct for the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement and NGOs in Disaster Relief, certified with the Core Humanitarian Standard, members of the Disasters Emergency Committee, as well as being funding recipients for ECHO, OFDA and the START Network amongst others. 
Tearfund have been operating in Iraq since 2015 and have a large, established and growing programme in the country working with conflict affected host, IDP and refugee populations. Implementing through both direct operations and through local partners, our current activities focus primarily on emergency and resettlement support in the areas of Cash/Voucher based Assistance, WASH intervention, Livelihood Programmes, Non Food Items, Protection and Social Cohesion .
