Displaced persons struggle with poor living conditions in Kurdistan region camps


Hundreds of displaced persons in Hassan Sham camp, in west Erbil of Kurdistan region in north Iraq, struggle with poor living conditions due to lack of basic services including water, electricity and education, in addition to the lack of humanitarian aid.

A large number of displaced persons are still unable to return to their original areas of residence due to the lack of basic services in those areas, according to the camp director, Yahya Adnan. The displaced persons call on concerned authorities to increase aid and improve basic services in the camp.
