[size=36]IOM Responds to Flooding in Iraq[/size]



Tuesday, 27 November 2018






Ninawa, 27 November 2018 – Large-scale flooding beginning on the morning of Friday (23/11) has wreaked havoc across Iraq, killing several people and causing widespread damage to homes, infrastructure and agriculture, and worsening the living conditions of internally displaced persons (IDPs).

In Ninewa governorate, Qayarrah Airstrip and Jeddah IDP camps were particularly affected by the flooding. Among the approximately 7,500 families residing in Qayarrah Airstrip Camp, 2,392 tents were completely flooded forcing hundreds of households to take refuge in the IOM health clinic and other communal areas. The health clinic in Qayarrah Airstrip Camp hosted nearly 300 individuals, providing IDPs with dry blankets, heaters and emergency health care services. The IOM ambulance transported ten individuals in need of medical assistance but unable to reach the clinic.
“We haven’t been able to sleep at all because we don’t have a dry spot to sit. The water level was knee-deep inside our tent. Now all of our belongings, everything we desperately need this winter, have been ruined by the mud left after the flood.
“We had to put our children on the roof of the communal kitchen to get them out of the mud. Even the food and grains we had stored are drenched. We are in desperate need of dry clothes, mattresses, blankets, fuel and food,” said Kamel Hussein, a resident of Qayarrah Airstrip Camp.
Within hours of the flooding, IOM immediately deployed its Rapid Assessment and Response Team and assessed the damage and needs in the camps. The Organization employed over 600 camp residents to clear the drainage channels, ensuring the flow of water out of the camp, and to repair the damaged road to restore access to camps, thereby allowing humanitarian assistance to reach the most vulnerable displaced persons.
IOM, in coordination with camp management entities, Representative for Ninewa Voluntary Displaced Organization (RNVDO) and Danish Refugee Council (DRC), immediately began distributing hundreds of kits to the most affected families.
Since Friday, more than 3,150 basic non-food item kits have been delivered to households in Qayarrah Airstrip and Jeddah consisting of mattresses, bedsheets, plastic sheeting, a solar lamp, rechargeable light, gas cooker, jerry can and kitchen set. Support for the kits was provided by the Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance and the Government of Germany.
“The rain and subsequent flooding experienced throughout Iraq over the past weekend has worsened the living conditions of the most vulnerable populations, including displaced households residing in camps. The flooding has highlighted the importance of humanitarian actors maintaining operational capacity in Iraq to scale up emergency assistance in the event of disaster,” said Gerard Waite, Chief of Mission of IOM Iraq.
With more rain expected over the coming days, IOM remains ready to respond to the arising needs and will continue to work closely with the Government of Iraq’s Ministry of Migration and Displacement and other humanitarian partners to ensure a timely and effective response to those most affected.

[size=36]Lifesaving medicine and medical supplies reach Shirqat to respond to needs of floods victims[/size]


Wednesday, 28 November 2018





Baghdad, 28 November 2018 – The World Health Organization (WHO) dispatched a consignment of lifesaving medicines and medical kits and supplies to Shirqat General Hospital in Shirqat District north of Salah Eldin Governorate.

The consignment contained more than 13 tons of medications including 4 Trauma A and 4 Trauma B Kits, one surgical kit, and 80 Inter-agency Health Emergency Kits (IHEK) of both basic and supplementary units. The consignment is sufficient to treat a population of 10.000 for a duration of 3 months.
The medication was handed over to Shirqat General Hospital to support the local health authorities meet the scale up in demand for first line and emergency health care services following the flash floods that severely affected Shirqat district in the governorate.
“WHO is committed to supporting the Ministry of Health and local health authorities in providing urgent health care services to the in-need population all over Iraq,” said Dr. Adham Ismail WHO Acting Representative in Iraq.
“WHO and its health partners are still required to deliver more and intervene further to ensure availability and easy access to health services including the referral and ambulatory services in IDP camps as well as remote and hard to reach areas,” added Dr. Ismail.
The wave of heavy rains and flash floods, which recently hit a number of governorates in Iraq, has severely affected under recovery areas and caused significant damage to properties in addition to disruption in transportation, water, and power supply.
In Salah Eldin governorate, over 1000 houses were swept away leading to the evacuation of more than 5000 residents of Shirqat district, considered among the worst affected.
Although health authorities in the governorate reported the death of 8, injury of 20, and missing of yet an unidentified number of citizens, the health situation in the governorate is in control. One WHO mobile medical clinic and five MOH ambulances were deployed at the beginning of the event to provide on-spot primary, referral, and ambulatory health services to flash floods victims.
No abnormal trends of diseases were reported but WHO urged local health authorities and partners to remain vigilant and monitor communicable disease cases trend through WHO Early Warning Alert and Response Network system (EWARN).
