Intense sectarian violence has swept through northern and central Iraq.

An estimated 500,000 people—including 250,000 Iraqi children—have fled their homes. Schools have been targeted, and hospitals supplies are dwindling.

UNICEF is working to provide essential services for children and families affected by the conflict.
