NRC has finished a first distribution of relief items to families displaced by the conflict in Anbar. “This came just in time, as some of us sleep on the ground”, explained a woman when receiving mattresses, kitchenware and other basic household items. More than 560,000 people have been displaced due to fighting in Anbar province in Iraq since late December 2013.

The Kurdistan Reconstruction and Development Society (KURDS) has been active in the response to the influx of IDPs into the KRI. With the support of UNHCR, KURDS activities have included the erection of 440 tents in Khazir transit camp and more than 150 tents in Garmawa Camp. In Khazir KURDS also constructed a shaded area for the registration center as well as an area for a car park.

Handicap International has expanded its team in Iraq in order to provide support to the most vulnerable people. Their first priority is to identify families in distress before supplying them with aid appropriate to their needs.“I came across sick people whose lives were in danger simply because they couldn’t get access treatments available just a few kilometres from where they were,” says Benedetta Di Cintio, Handicap International’s head of mission in Iraq. Benedetta spent several days visiting displaced people, thousands of whom have been fleeing fighting in the centre of the country. They include families who, in order to escape the violence, had to leave their homes within a matter of hours. “What really struck me were the families of…
