Iraq

Zain Iraq has been involved in a wide scale program of engagement to cover educational and health programs. This aligns with Zain Group's strategic vision to undertake corporate activities that focus on education and health.

The Imagine Cup is a cooperation project between Zain Iraq and Microsoft, and was held in the Kurdistan region of Iraq in 2012. The Imagine Cup is the world's premier student technology competition that brings young technologists and students together to use their imagination and passion to create a technology solution that helps solve the toughest problems through the power of IT.

On the health front, a far-reaching medical cooperation between Zain Iraq, South Korean doctors, and the Higher Education Ministry resulted in a successful visit of doctors to the country, ending a 20-year boycott. The Korean delegation represented Wong Wang Medical University and Zain supported the Korean delegation as it gave lectures in neurology and brain surgery to medical students. Zain Iraq also financed and facilitated a bilateral agreement to send some difficult medical cases to be treated in Korea.

A Wonderful World
