In August 2019, an MFA container of children's clothing was distributed to 1,900 girls living in Kawergosk refugee camp in northern Iraq.


Just twenty-five minutes outside the capital city of Erbil in the Kurdish Region of northern Iraq, Kawergosk refugee camp is home to some 7,900 thousand Syrian refugees that have fled the crisis.

In August 2019, an MFA container of children's clothing served 1,900 girls living in the camp. Each girl received a bag that included two items of clothing, from dresses and animal-embroidered sweatshirts to warm pullovers and colorful tees. The clothing was gifted to girls as young as 3-months-old to up to 14-years-old. 

For the clothing distribution, MFA worked with PASS and the Barzani Charity Foundation, a non-profit working in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq to provide humanitarian assistance to refugees, internally displaced people, and local people in need.

In July 2019, an MFA container of humanitarian relief was distributed to families living in four camps outside the city of Jarabulus in northwest Syria.

The container served 9,660 people—or 1,425 families—with relief supplies, including water treatment kits, mujadara meals, and hygiene supplies.

More than 3 million people are in need in northwest Syria. Making conditions worse, violence continues unabated. Since the end of April, more than 800 people have been killed, including some 218 children and 179 women. The impact of hostilities on women and children, who make up for the 76 percent of the total population, is particularly severe.

Hundreds of thousands of civilians have been forced to flee their homes to escape the violence. Between April and August alone, there have been more than 750,000 displacements. The majority of those who are displaced are moving to densely-populated areas where humanitarian assistance is over-stretched.

In June 2019, an MFA container of humanitarian relief was distributed to 3 villages and camps in northwest Syria. The container served 3,757 people  — or 620 families — with relief supplies, including water purification kits, mujadara meal kits, and hygiene supplies.

"The humanitarian crisis in northwest Syria is worsening every day," said a Watan Rise humanitarian aid worker during GlobalMedic supplies distribution to a displaced persons camp in Arihah in June 2019.

Many of the families in Arihah have been displaced for more than a year, the majority fleeing the countryside of Damascus and Homs with nothing but the clothes on their back. Worse still, Watan Rise observed many people with disabilities and injuries. Arihah has been repeatedly targeted by Syrian government shelling.

A Syrian government airstrike hit a busy open-air market in Arihah on Saturday, July 27th, 2019, killing at least 11 people, most of them children, according to activists. The town of Ari...
