Bringing Relief in Mosul

Samaritan’s Purse has a disaster response team on the ground in Northern Iraq, joining our national staff as they provide physical and spiritual relief in Jesus’ Name. We are providing relief to thousands of people who have already fled Mosul and surrounding villages, as the Iraqi military offensive to retake Mosul from ISIS occupation continues.

  • Number of people who have fled Mosul is now at over 73,000
  • While the numbers of those fleeing have maintained a steady pace, as the conflict to oust ISIS intensifies, a greater exodus of people is expected
  • Among the needs of those who’ve fled are:
    • Food, water, shelter
    • Long-term deprivation of medical needs
    • Malnutrition – significantly affecting mothers and their babies
    • Recovery from trauma – many have lost family members and witnessed ISIS-inflicted atrocities
  • Samaritan’s Purse is supplying vital supplies, including food, water, medical care, shelter and aids to keep warm
  • We have sent a medical team to assess the health needs that we can assist with
  • Pressing needs include means to survive the bitterly cold winter. We are chartering our DC8 aircraft to transport cooking kits, blankets, and other supplies necessary for this
  • Partnering with World Food Programme, we are providing food in six camps. In addition they have requested us to extend this food distribution to villages. This brings the total number of people that we have been asked to feed to 30,000 households, or approximately 150,000 people
  • UNICEF have asked us to distribute hygiene kits and water purification kits for 150,000 families
  • We are also recognised WASH [water, sanitation and hygiene] partners to OCHA
