Suffering has reached unprecedented levels in Iraq as more than 10 million people need humanitarian assistance. After the fighting that recently took place, around 85,000 people escaped Fallujah and sought safety in nearby camps like in Amiriyat Al Fallujah.

Even as the ICRC continues to provide relief to a large number of the affected population — with food, drinking water and medical assistance — today, one out of ten children in Iraq is displaced in their own country. There are about 1.5 million children, who are living in poor conditions and staring at an uncertain future.
