Cooperating with non-governmental, multilateral and bilateral and diplomatic organizations is an essential part of Radio Al-Salam’s work.
By providing information about humanitarian efforts, we aim at making the work easier to understand for its beneficiaries. It contributes to acceptance and understanding among the local population and prevents misunderstandings or unrealistic expectations. Since our journalists are all Iraqis and in regular contact with displaced people, they aware of the beneficiaries’ needs and concerns. As a result, we are committed to raising awareness and spreading information on humanitarian topics such as health, protection or education.
As such, we offer the following services to various NGOs, the UN, and diplomatic organizations

Exemple: Radio Al-Salam is involved in the anti-fraud campaign led by UNHCR and implemented by the NGOs ACTED and Un Ponte Per. From October to December 2017, we warn refugees and IDPs in Northern Iraq about fake assistance on food or visa applications. Indeed, some malevolent people promise humanitarian services against a sizeable amount of money, but they never provide the promised support. It is our duty, as humanitarian radio, to inform our listeners and to head them toward the relevent authorities. The jingles hav been co-designed by UNHCR and ACTED, and recorded by the team of Radio Al-Salam.
Exemple: Since October 2017, Radio Al-Salam is partnering with the NGO Handicap International, to raise awareness about mines in retaken areas. It informs listeners about the appearence of mines and how to avoid it when they come back to their villages and homes. This jingle has been designed by Handicap International and the local authority responsible on mine prevention, IKMAA. It has been recorded, edited and broadcasted by Radio Al-Salam.
