Fleeing Conflict in Iraq

Description

Iraqis fleeing conflict are crowded into the Kurdistan Region of Iraq. Many left home with nothing.

More than 3 million people in Iraq have been forced to leave their homes because of conflict. 

Since last September World Vision has provided assistance to displaced people in the Kurdish region of Iraq, including food, water and sanitation, household items, and programs to protect and educate children.  

World Vision’s operations are in three governorates — Erbil, Duhok, and Sulaymaniyah — that host approximately 2.1 million displaced people. The major focus of the response is on providing life necessities for 220,000 people who are not living within camps, but have settled in unused buildings and open spaces, and therefore receive less support.
