Abed*, his wife and their two children come from a town in Iraq that was taken by ISIS in 2014. The family, including Abed’s two small children, Rayan*, 6 and Rawan*, 4, have been in constant fear the past two years, until they fled and arrived at Garmawa camp, in the Kurdistan region of northern Iraq, in mid-2016.  They want to go home soon, to live a life free from ISIS.

In Garmawa camp Save the Children is working to address humanitarian concerns and protection needs. Many children are arriving having left everything behind when they fled, and many have experienced significant trauma. We are operating a Child-Friendly Space that provides educational and recreational activities to more than 800 children. We run a library and a playground, and are also distributing vital items such as baby kits, which include blankets, nappies and other essential items. As well as this we provide psychosocial support and case management services – tackling abuse, neglect and other problems – for children who need them. We also support parents, providing educational classes that teach parenting skills, a space where mothers can bring their infants, and training and support through our Early Care and Childhood Development programme.
