IBC HELPS WAR VICTIMS of BABIES and CHILDREN


“Helping Hands for Vulnerable Children and Babies Project in Delal and Berdar Cities in Iraq”

In Iraq due to the ongoing civil war and armed groups’ attacks the affected population faces challenges many different types of obstacles, to survive and in accessing essential and vital needs, including food, appropriate shelter, health, education, water and sanitation especially in security comprised areas. Concurrently the services in the host community overstretched by the influx of IDPs, many of whom are occupying key community resources, such as schools and mosques and in incomplete constructions.

The civil war affected people only have limited access to conflicting information regarding both aid provision and the future plans for response and return that may also cause increased social tension. As the crisis escalates, the number of affected children continues to increase. UNICEF estimates the number of children under five-years old was 4.8 million in 2012. Similarly, 23 per cent of Iraq’s population was aged between 10 and 17 years in 2012. Children in KRG conflict are particularly vulnerable to deteriorating poor nutrition, health, non-food items such winter cloths, psychosocial issues and reduced learning opportunities.

According to 2014 findings, in Iraq more than 831.600 IDPs are estimated to be of school –going age (4-17 years old).

In this context, IBC developed the project of Helping Hands for Vulnerable Children and Babies Project in Delal and Berdar Cities in Iraq and supported 1250 pre-school and school age children (4-17) and babies (12-36 months) by provision of winter clothes with the funds of International Blue Crescent Relief and Development Foundation, German Lions International and Help - Hilfe zur Selbsthilfe. Distribution of the winterization relief was realized on the dates of 23rd and 24th February 2015 in the rural parts of Berdar and Delal Cities with the direct participation of project team.
