This update highlights the Danish Refugee Council’s humanitarian intervention, to assist the displacement-affected population in Iraq. This update covers activities conducted from DRC’s operational hubs in Baghdad and the Kurdistan Region for the period 24 – 30 August, 2014.

Activities completed for the reporting period in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq:

IDPs located at Wargeh Dalal in Zakho, Nothern Iraq, who were in dire need of shelter, received 300 tents from DRC.
