IRAQ  

 CLEAN DRINKING WATER RESPONSE 2014 

Ongoing violence in the Middle East has affected millions of people, with over 302,000 families internally displaced in the Iraqi Kurdistan region. An estimate of 40% of these IDPs have sought shelter in spontaneous communal settlements such as schools and abandoned or unfinished buildings. The families lack heat, electricity, running water, latrines and proper protection from the elements. With no foreseeable end to the crisis and winter fast approaching, humanitarian needs in the Kurdistan region are immense. Access to basic necessities such as water remains insecure.  In response to the refugee crisis, GlobalMedic has secured access to safe, clean drinking water for thousands of IDPs.
