CARE is responding to the humanitarian needs in Northern Iraq. In and around Mosul, CARE delivers water, sanitation, shelter and household items. So far, CARE has reached over 100,000 people with this assistance. In Mosul city and other areas of Northern Ninewa, CARE is also rehabilitating and equipping public health centres with medical equipment and supplies, and providing nutritional and educational services to pregnant women and new mothers. CARE is also training midwives and traditional birth attendants to deliver maternal health services to people in the area.
In camps for displaced people and surrounding host communities in Northern Iraq, CARE is working with local Iraqi organisations to provide clean drinking water and hygiene items to people living there. CARE and partners regularly repair and maintain the water and sanitation facilities in the camps, and provide garbage collection and septic tank emptying services, to ensure the camp’s water and sanitation facilities are operating, and people can stay healthy.
