Meet Shahad. She lives with her family in a tent at a displacement camp near Qayarrah, #Iraq. Conflict around the city of #Mosul forced her and her family — along with more than 213,000 others — to flee their homes since May 2016. Families are undertaking terrifying journeys, some walking over 30 miles, through active conflict zones littered with unexploded ordnance and improvised explosive devices, to reach safety.
Right now, @unicef_iraq يونيسف العراق is doing whatever it takes to help children and families on the run. In the coming months, as many as 700,000 more may require shelter and other lifesaving assistance.
