This first episode features Iraq, where 3 million people have fled their homes to escape ISIS. The small camp of Debaga, which is home to around 400 dispaced Iraqis, is just one example of this large-scale displacement. Every month, WFP was providing full food rations to the families in Debaga, but this is no longer the case. Due to lack of funds, WFP has been forced to reduce this crucial food assistance.
