Supporting child protection and emergency education for children affected by the conflict in Iraq
The military offensive aroundMosul caused massive displacements of population in the governorates of Dohuk and Nineveh. Via mobile units, TGH provides immediate protection and improved access to emergency education for the children affected by the conflict.
- Funding: OCHA/ IHPF – UNICEF
- Partner: DAD
Contingency stocks are also ready to respond to population movements.
Civilians, fleeing the fighting of the military offensive aiming to reclaim the Mosul area occupied by Daesh, are regrouped in IDP camps.
This programme supports newly displaced children with significant psychological trauma. This mobile approach will be achieved through the deployment of two "magic buses" and two mini-vans that will cover the areas of intervention, allowing better access to the beneficiaries inside and outside the IDP camps. The mobile teams will carry out assessments aiming to identify the children and adolescents most at risk, in order to provide first-aid psychological support. The magic buses will offer services for the immediate handling of trauma cases and will provide emergency education through the establishment of specially adapted temporary reception and learning facilities. Activities will therefore be carried out as closely as possible to vulnerable populations, in the context of population displacements that are difficult to anticipate, and in various places (in transit camps or places where displaced persons are gathered).
