BCF Publishes the Sphere Handbook in Kurdish

The Kurdish version of the Sphere Handbook 2011 edition is now available in the Kurdish language. The translation of this handbook was led by Barzani Charity Foundation (BCF), with maintaining its international quality standards.


The Sphere Handbook, Humanitarian Charter and Minimum Standards in Humanitarian Response, is internationally recognized sets of common principles and minimum standards in life-saving areas of humanitarian response.


The handbook is the result of the Sphere project which was a joint initiative taken by a range of humanitarian agencies, aiming to improve the quality of humanitarian assistance and the responsibility of those agencies towards their constituents, donors and affected populations.


The Sphere Handbook establishes shared principles and a set of universally acknowledged minimum standards in four life-saving areas of humanitarian response: water and sanitation, food, shelter and healthcare.
