Since early 2014 Iraq has been suffering repeated heavy fighting. With no end in sight, in the meantime more than 3 million people have been displaced within the country. Many of them are seeking refuge in the autonomous region of Kurdistan in North Iraq, which is already hosting more than 240 000 Syrian refugees. Because the living conditions of these displaced persons are precarious, the German Red Cross is supporting the Iraqi Red Crescent in its emergency relief efforts.
