Leyla (left), 3, arrived in northern Iraq from Syria with her mother Sawsan, 26, father Rafat and siblings. Christian Aid partner REACH is one of the few providing support to refugees in northern Iraq. ‘There is some aid, but it’s just not enough,’ Sawsan says.

REACH is providing essential items to 1500 families like Sawsan’s around Sulaimaniya and Erbil in the north of Iraq. These include hygiene kits containing first aid equipment, soap, shampoo, water purifiers and sanitary products which are essential for enabling people to keep clean and healthy, and maintain a sense of personal dignity.
