A team of humanitarian aid workers returned from Mosul, Iraq, yesterday with heavy hearts having encountered the desperation and suffering of displaced people.
The team travelled to the war-torn city to deliver essential aid and water to those fleeing the war in Mosul.
The Hasan Shami camp is on the brink of a humanitarian crisis and was therefore a high priority for Human Relief Foundation (HRF). Displaced families inside the camp complained about the infestation of insects, scorpions and snakes.
To add to this injury, there is a serious shortage of food and water supplies.
The team witnessed the agonising situation of the children's ward at the HRF-funded Ibn Al Atheer Hospital in Mosul, which is frequently targeted by ISIS. Six children passed away in one night alone and with the severe shortage of medical care, many more are likely to follow.
