The Holy Land Institute for the Deaf (HLID)/ Salt was established in 1964 as a Charity institution and school for Deaf and Deafblind children and belongs to the Arab Evangelical Episcopal Church / Diocese of Jerusalem.

The HLID is running a local educational training programme called outreach, and a regional one called: Salt Training & Resource Institute For Disability, Etc. STRIDE.

For the past 13 years, one of STRIDE's activities was carried out with the cooptation of CARE International and the ministry of Labor and Social Affairs and was a training programme for all Deaf Institutions in Iraq (Central Iraq and Kurdistan).

Educational materials and training resources for staff used to be sent by CARE International, and ICRC / IQS.

CARE international has been closed since 2005, and ICRC / IQS cannot provide logistical support to Iraq.

HLID is planning to donate some of its products to the Deaf and Deafblind schools and centres in Iraq through our new regional office in Al-Mansour, Baghdad and are looking for a medium NGO that can help by transferring our resources freely to Baghdad.

The HLID would highly appreciate if potential partner organisations can support, by delivering the books to their office in Baghdad.
