PRESS RELEASE 
1st​ Nove​​mber​ 2016




An hour away from Mosul, a small team is providing support to people displaced by violence, while preparing for the predicted influx of up to a million more people.

​They work in the Iraq Internally Displaced People Information Centre – a humanitarian helpline – and field calls from people who have been forced to leave their homes and seek shelter.
 
“People are looking for escape routes. Some have fled and are stranded. Many are searching for lost family members. We are asked how to access humanitarian aid – food, healthcare, child protection. Essentially calls can be on any topic,” explained UNOPS Project Manager Charlotte Lancaster.
