Over 3,750 Syrian refugee children in Duhok receive winter clothes





Barzani Charity Foundation (BCF), in coordination with the UNICEF, distributed winter clothing to the Syrian refugee children in Gawelan camp in Duhok Governorate. 


The BCF delivered UNICEF-provided packages, containing winter clothes, to 3,768 Syrian refugee children settled in Gawelan camp on Sunday, January 7, 2018.


Moreover, the foundation distributed winter clothes to 506 more Syrian refugee children in Akre camp on Saturday, January 6.


Due to the cold temperatures and hardships in the camps, the refugees and the internally displaced persons (IDPs) settled in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq are undergoing severe situation and the children are more vulnerable to such conditions. The BCF, therefore, has placed special focus on children and prioritized their needs.
