Refugees are not only those who flee overseas from violence. There are also millions of internally displaced people who flee dangerous cities to other cities within the country. It is estimated that 2.6 million Iraqis have been forced from their homes but remain inside the country. 1.5 million of these displaced Iraqi and Syrian refugees have moved into the Kurdistan region of Iraq where 25% of the population is displaced.
These families are in need of someone to take care of them and help them to overcome trauma, poverty and hopelessness. The families cannot provide for themselves as they lost all they had and there are no jobs available.
CRY has partnered with a team in this region that are providing support to around 90 children and their families through food, clothing, school equipment and medicine. We provide transport for them to get to school, help with their fees and support families with basic necessities.
