Northern Iraq has been in the grip of sectarian war since Islamic State swept across the region in the summer of 2014. According to the International Organisation for Migration, over 3 million Iraqis have been internally displaced. Many of these people are now living in UN camps in the semi-autonomous region of Iraqi Kurdistan.
We have been providing emergency relief in Northern Iraq since the crisis began. We provide food packages, water, clothing, bedding and medical assistance for thousands of internally displaced people. We also work with the Armenian and Syrian Orthodox churches to provide food and shelter for Christian IDPs, many of whom are living in church compounds in Erbil.
We are also funding a kindergarten in Erbil, an all-girls school in Harsham IDP camp north of Erbil, and an autism centre for children in Kirkuk.
