IRAQ 

 IDP WINTERIZATION RESPONSE 2015 

The threat of cold weather marks a severe risk for families in Northern Iraq who have been displaced as a result of the ongoing violence. The thousands of families who have sought shelter in spontaneous communal settlements such as schools and abandoned or unfinished buildings are increasingly vulnerable as the winter months near.

In response, GlobalMedic implemented a Non-Food-Item (NFI) winterization program. Through the procurement and distribution of blankets, mattresses, coverlets, household heaters, soap, baby diapers and female sanitary pads, GlobalMedic ensured the warmth, health and safety of hundreds of men, women and children living in inadequate shelters.
