Iraqis in desperate need.

In the past few weeks, hundreds of thousands of innocent Iraqis have been forced to flee their homes. In fear for their lives, many left with only the clothes on their backs.

An estimated 1.8 million Iraqis have so far been displaced this year. For many, this is not their first time.

Terrified and now homeless, families are exposed to soaring heat, often without anything to eat or drink. They are in desperate need of emergency aid.

UNHCR is on the ground providing protection and life-saving aid through tents, mattresses and other basic essentials. But as the situation worsens our supplies are running low.

We urgently need help in order to provide emergency aid for thousands of Iraqi men, women and children affected by the violence. Please make an emergency donation today.

According to officials in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq, at least 41,000 Iraqis, including Arabs, Christians and other minorities, have fled into the region to escape armed groups that recently took over the northern city of Sinjar and other neighbouring communities. Iraqi Kurdistan is already home to more than 300,000 Iraqis displaced since June, and a further 220,000 Syrian refugees. The pressure is growing on the region’s already limited resources.

You can help us reach more people affected by the crisis in Iraq. Please make a donation now.
