Iraq: Displaced Yazidi Community To Face Harsh Winter

Since the upsurge in violence in June, WFP has provided food assistance to more than 1 million Iraqis. Many of them, like this Yazidis community in Zakho, are still living in temporary accommodations and camps enduring harsh weather and fearing the coming cold. Now, they are also at risk of going hungry as funding for WFP’s aid operations in Iraq runs out at the end of December. WFP is appealing for US$29 million to provide the displaced Iraqis with food from January to March 2015.
