Baghdad, 19 April 2015: Humanitarian agencies are rushing to provide assistance to more than 90,000 people fleeing clashes in Anbar Governorate.

Baghdad, 17 April, 2015 -  IOM has distributed 150 life-saving family non-food item (NFI) kits yesterday to recently internally displaced people (IDPs) in Al A'dwaniya, Mahmudiya District, in the south of Baghdad Governorate.  The families were displaced by continued violence from Ramadi, Anbar Governorate, within the past week.

Baghdad, 11 June 2014 – The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) in a joint effort with the Directorate of Education (DoE) in Anbar, is organizing Catch-Up Classes (CUC) for more than 1,500 students displaced and affected by violence in Anbar Governorate. The one month Catch-up Classes started today and aim to provide students from the 9th till 12th grade with an opportunity and space to better prepare themselves over the summer holidays for their final examination, which were postponed until August 2014. The idea originated from the concern that a majority of the displaced students from Fallujah and Ramadi did not attend school for more than three months and are at risk of a set-back by almost one academic year. 

GENEVA, June 6 (UNHCR) – The UN refugee agency on Friday said that violence in central Iraq's restive Anbar province has displaced close to half-a-million civilians so far this year. "With a deteriorating security situation, it is also becoming harder for humanitarian actors to reach those in need," said UNHCR spokesman Adrian Edwards.
