UK aid from the British people

Country FlagIraq


Daesh’s expansion into Iraq in 2014 created a major humanitarian crisis. Over 10 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance, including over 3 million Iraqis that have been displaced from their homes. Since the summer of 2014, the UK has announced £169.5 million of humanitarian assistance. This includes £90 million announced in 2016, with a substantial element supporting partners preparing and responding to Mosul.
