In the north of Iraq, care for those who have been displaced by the advance of the so-called ‘Islamic State’ terror organization is slowly improving. “International aid is gradually getting a better grip on things,” says Oliver Hochedez, Malteser International’s emergency relief coordinator, with regard to the situation in the Dohuk area of the Kurdistan autonomous region. “Most of the refugees are now housed in organized tent cities. Across the country, however, there are more people being displaced every day – particularly from the areas which are being heavily fought over.”
