Why we need your help
Since 2014 the devastating violence in Iraq has forced over three million people to leave their homes in search of safety.
One father described his family’s grim escape from the fighting in Mosul. They fled their home and walked miles to a refugee camp:
“We were trembling all night from the cold. We have a young baby. She doesn’t have milk and we carried her all the way. She was crying the whole night.”
This family were lucky – they escaped the conflict. But every month the crisis continues across Iraq. And every month more families are running for their lives, struggling to survive.
More than ten million people desperately need our help today.

It is very hard to believe what those families have endured.
