Iraq University College (IUC) Dean and Vice Chancellor has formed and established Basrah & South Society For Social & Civic Development (BSSSCD); which is a caring charity and community organisation established to provide support to the people of Basra and surrounding regions. Our aim is to focus on restoring dignity, hope and positive self-concept. The charity was established in March 2000 and has helped the infirm and needy ever since.
The expansion and fast growth of the organization and further branches under the umbrella of Basra & South Society for Social & Civic Development is due to the trust and good relations our chairman has built up with local communities, governmental departments such as DfID (Department for International Development) and local Iraqi governorates, charitable organizations such as the British Council, National Endowment for Democracy and several United Nations Departments such as the UNDP (United Nations Development Program), UNOPS and UNHCR.
The charity has been able to build good working relationships with affiliates, working partners, governmental organizations and NGOs including:
• CPA (Coalition Provisional Authority/Multinational Forces)
• FCO (Foreign & Commonwealth Office)
• DFID (Department for International Development)
• The British Council
• IECI (Independent Election Commission of Iraq)
• NED (National Endowment for Democracy)
• Millennium Awards Commission
