Middle East Dairy Farming

04/09/2018 Kurdistan Region of Iraq

In the wake of the Syrian civil war and the IS occupation, a vast number of Syrians have fled to the neighboring countries, ca. 250,000 of them to Iraq. In 2018, I was commissioned by QUDRA Programme to shoot images for a reportage on quick impact, small scale actions to support Syrian refugees and their host communities in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq, which resulted in a short video and an article in the giz Magazine “Akzente”. The focus was on milking machines which were distributed to dairy farmers employing Syrian refugees – making their strenuous work easier and more efficient.
