Approximately one-third of the population in Iraq currently require humanitarian assistance. This is not including the 3.3 million people who since January 2014 fled their homes. Many Iraqis live in regions where combatant forces are in control and under constant threat.

In Iraq’s Kurdistan region, one million displaced people and 250,000 Syrians who have sought refuge in Iraq are also in need of aid. Kurdistan especially also has 500,000 people who are aiming to restore their lives.  

“We face a major humanitarian emergency. We need the international community’s support to prevent further deterioration,” Dr. Jassim Mohammed Mohammed Al-Jaff, Minister of Migration and Displacement and Chairman of the Higher Committee for the Relief and Sheltering of IDPs, said.

“The national effort to address the humanitarian crisis in Iraq is impressive, involving the Federal Government, Kurdish authorities and civil society. With needs outstripping national capacities, international action and engagement are essential to help people in trouble, particularly in coming months as we expect the crisis to widen and worsen,” said Ms. Lise Grande, the Humanitarian Coordinator in Iraq.
