Humanitarian assistance to UNHCR's operations to help IDPs in Iraq

Description

The humanitarian situation in Iraq is extremely serious and has deteriorated during the latter part of 2014 due to the advancement of the islamist group ISIL. There are 5,2 million Iraqis in need of humanitarian assistance, and more than two million internally displaced persons. The biggest humanitarian needs are shelter and non-food items which are urgently needed to ensure winter survival of people living in substandard housing. UNHCR's needs account for around 377 million euros of the UN's Strategic Response Plan (SRP) for 2014-2015. The proposal is for 1 000 000 million euros of humanitarian aid to support the UNHCR's operation to help IDPs in Íraq.
