IBBC signs MOU with Red Crescent

IBBC has signed an MOU for cooperation with the Iraqi Red Crescent Society (IRCS), in the House of Lords on 15th April.

Professor Mohamed Al Uzri, IBBC Education lead says: ’IBBC membership in Education has a strong and growing footprint in Iraq, with British, Iraqi and International Universities, Schools and training organisations, who’s expertise we can leverage for the benefit of all Iraqis through the IRCS network’

Dr Yaseen Ahmed Abbas, president of IRCS says: ‘We see great potential in this new relationship with IBBC , to provide strengthened capability across Iraq for us all to improve the lives of the most vulnerable through education’.
