DRC - Registration IPDs - Qayyarah

The Danish Refugee Council (DRC), along with other organisations, began receiving displaced Iraqis at the Qayyarah Airstrip on 06 December. Thanks to the support from the European Commission’s Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection department (ECHO), the Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance (OFDA), and UNICEF,   about 1,445 families (8,987 individuals) have been registered and housed in the camp, with more desperate Iraqis arriving each day.

Over 1,420 Rapid Response Mechanism (RRM) kits have been distributed to IDPs within hours of arrival, giving critical emergency food and water as well as hygiene and dignity kits to cover the first 72 hours at the site.
