Summary on UK's Humanitarian Response in Iraq

The Department for International Development (DFID) has been operating in Iraq since 2014 to provide humanitarian assistance to people affected by Daesh’s capture of large areas of Iraq as millions of people in Iraq have been displaced and are in need of urgent humanitarian assistance. Minorities are under threat and the deteriorating security situation has had a major impact on women and children’s rights and wellbeing. DFID’s goal, as part of the wider UK effort, is to help to meet the urgent needs of people affected by conflict, whilst supporting the Government of Iraq’s efforts to stabilise the country. 

The UK government's humanitarian assistance has provided for the most urgent needs of displaced people across sectors such as health, shelter, and protection including for women and girls. As well as seven other different projects.
