UNHCR confirmed in a press release that Hasansham U2 IDP is now open and ready to receive IDPs. QANDIL has already begun protection activities at the camp assisting the newly arriving families from Mosul. The camp has a capacity for 9,000 people and QANDIL will continue to work in partnership with UNHCR to make sure that adequate protection, community and legal services are provided.
Since the fighting began in Mosul government figures suggest that more than 610,000 people have been displaced. Humanitarian actors across the Kurdistan Region of Iraq (KR-I) have noted that protection concerns continue to be paramount, placing QANDIL in a prominent position in the overall response.
