The UK is doing all it can to minimise the risks of aid being diverted or misused in Iraq. UK funds are channelled through organisations that have a strong track record of delivering humanitarian aid in difficult and dangerous places. We also apply a rigorous process of due diligence, where they must demonstrate clear and accountable governance structures, with transparent and accountable financial procedures. All partners that receive UK funding must also demonstrate full compliance with humanitarian principles.
