Help Children Affected by Violence in Iraq
Children across Iraq are under siege. Armed groups have targeted them and their families.
Some confront acute shortages of food and water.
Schools have closed. Hospital supplies are dwindling.
Children also risk separation from their parents, injury from improvised explosive devices, and exploitation and child trafficking.
An estimated 3.3 million Iraqis — half of them children — have fled their homes in since January 2014. Approximately 4.7 million children need immediate humanitarian assistance.
UNICEF is providing Iraqi children with safe spaces and lifesaving aid, including water and sanitation, food, medical kits and vaccinations, and special care for pregnant women and lactating mothers. UNICEF staff also help children reunite with family members, obtain psychosocial support and gain access to education.
