in focus

In Iraq, the ICRC helps displaced people, refugees and civilians in places affected by fighting during the times of crisis. We improve access to clean water and health care, visit detainees and enable them to maintain contact with their families and support the authorities’ efforts to clarify the fate of people missing from earlier conflicts.
