On the Run in Iraq


Having fled violence, Nehmai, 65, lives with eight family members in an unfinished building in Dohuk, northern Iraq. Seventy families share the first three floors.

“God-willing, we will return home, and Iraq will be a country of peace,” Nehmai says.

Fighting has spilled over from Syria and flared up internally, displacing more than 2 million people since January 2014. Northern Iraq already hosted more than 228,000 Syrian refugees. The U.N. Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs estimates about 5.2 million people now need humanitarian assistance, including food, shelter, clean water, sanitation services, and education support.

As many as 600,000 people seeking shelter in mountainous areas of northern Iraq need help to weather the cold, snowy winter months.
