Solar lights for Internally Displaced People (IDP) in Mosul

The hu­man­it­ari­an crisis in Ir­aq is one of the largest and most com­plex in the world. Es­tim­ates show that more than 12 mil­lion people in the con­flict re­gion re­quire some form of hu­man­it­ari­an as­sist­ance. Cordaid and their loc­al part­ner work in the Mo­sul crisis to­wards an in­teg­rated strategy for emer­gency aid. Primar­ily this is done in the area south of Mo­sul, in vil­lages that have been lib­er­ated re­cently and where in­hab­it­ants have re­turned to and try to set up their lives again. Cordaid sup­ports in­tern­ally dis­placed people in Mo­sul with ba­sic needs, such as food, shel­ter and health care, for winter sur­viv­al. WakaWa­kas will be dis­trib­uted to the most vul­ner­able house­holds in or­der to en­sure their safety at night and to bring a little light to the dark­ness. As there is no reg­u­lar power avail­able, the pop­u­la­tion can be­ne­fit greatly from re­ceiv­ing sol­ar lights.
