Violent attacks in Iraq have created new waves of displacement– causing an emergency call for even more resources in the area. Terrified, homeless and in need of food and water, families are fleeing with nothing but the clothes on their backs. They have no other choice, if they want to survive.
UNHCR is on the ground, providing much needed protection and aid to hundreds of thousands of families. Rapid response efforts are underway, including the distribution of critical relief items like blankets, clean drinking water, hygiene kits, sleeping mats and other basic survival items.
Mosul Update: The fighting in Mosul, Iraq has caused a humanitarian crisis. UNHCR is mobilizing resources to setup additional sites to provide relief to those fleeing the violence in Mosul. UNHCR anticipates nearly one million people could be displaced in the region.
