For nearly a decade, HAI has worked in the D.R. documenting and responding to the urgent needs and vulnerabilities of stateless populations and those at risk of statelessness. Working across 11 provinces, HAI provides legal and psychosocial services to help stateless individuals obtain nationality and reintegrate into Dominican society.

“I thank God that I was able to get my documents with the help of Heartland Alliance.” Said Anita, 24. “With those documents, I was able to register my youngest child as Dominican, and I was able to get insurance for both of us. I’m very happy because now I can afford doctors’ visits and medical tests because the insurance covers a big percentage.” More Information

Although many individuals and families have returned home since the end of the war with ISIS in 2017, approximately 1.2 million people remain internally displaced. Of the total number of internally displaced, more than half sought refuge in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq (KRI), where HAI is active across several provinces. In the region, we focus on a number of areas, including supporting displaced people, minorities, and victims of trafficking, addressing violence against women, improving mental health infrastructure, and providing juveniles access to justice.

Millions of Iraqis who fled their homes during the war have to start over from nothing. But they don’t have to start over alone. More Information

To bridge health and communication disparities in Indigenous communities, Heartland Alliance International (HAI) launched a radio campaign to raise awareness about COVID-19. The segments were adapted to fit Colombia’s Indigenous groups’ unique language and cultural customs and works to debunk false beliefs about the virus. In addition to information about the virus, the radio segments include mental health tips and tools to prevent family and gender-based violence. More Information
