Interview with an Iraqi Advocate: May Rajab,
Can you please share your name and where you are from?
I am May Rajab and I am from Baghdad.
Tell me about yourself?
I have 10 years' experience of administrative operator
working in various sectors and I received a BSC degree of
Spanish Language in 2004 from the University of Baghdad.
I have participated in many of Mercy Without Limits activities
especially West of Mosul to help internally displaced
What was the hardest thing about 2017?
Through my work as an advocate, I saw a lot of people
suffering, especially the orphans and the displaced people
who are living in harsh conditions in the camps.
What are your biggest concerns or worries for the new year - 2018?
My fear for this year is that the devastated areas will not be reconstructed, and displaced
families are now being forced to return to their destroyed places. There is no water,
electricity, schools and homes destroyed.
If you were to meet face-to-face with the donors who helped support this change in
your life, what would you say?
Without donors we can never work. We thank all the donors who help us in the
implementation of our humanitarian activities and we very much appreciate them.
How do you plan on handling the concerns you have for 2018?
As for the return of the displaced to their places and is not ready to return this problem
should be intervened by the donor countries and organizations to reconstruct the affected
