Up close: Providing humanitarian assistance in Kurdistan

In response to a request from the Kurdistan Regional Government, ExxonMobil and our affiliate ExxonMobil Kurdistan Region of Iraq Limited contributed $1.5 million to International Medical Corps (IMC) to aid both Syrian refugees and Internally Displaced Persons near our exploration operations. IMC used the funds to deploy mobile medical units to fill gaps in health care and scale up health education and outreach, particularly among women, children and the elderly. The grant enabled more than 33,000 people to receive primary health care consultations, of which 86 percent were women, children and the elderly. Additionally, more than 27,000 people participated in health education sessions. Given the ongoing challenges in the Kurdistan region of Iraq, ExxonMobil is committed to caring for our neighbors in this region.
