The official Iraqi authorities acknowledged the high indicators of the poverty line in the country, especially among children, as they are the weakest link in society.

The United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) announced yesterday that one out of every four children in Iraq lives in poverty, while four million children need help as a result of the war on "urging."

In a statement, the United Nations said that the United Nations has verified 150 attacks on educational facilities and 50 attacks on health centers and staff since 2014, explaining that half of Iraq's schools need to be repaired while the educational process has disrupted more than three million children. "Children are the future of Iraq," said Gert Kapillier, WHO Regional Director for the Middle East and North Africa, calling for investment in children to rebuild a stable Iraq.

The Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs in the Iraqi government, "The poverty rate in Iraq is already high despite the contradiction of figures and statistics, but in the end close to reality to a large extent." "The poverty rate in Iraq is more than 28 per cent, which is high in a supposedly rich country, but there are many reasons and factors that led to it," said Dr. Abeer al-Chalabi, director of the Office of Child Welfare in Iraq and director of special needs at the Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs. Including the war against an oppressive organization, and the social and economic repercussions that have left their impact on childhood in the first place, because children are the largest proportion of the population, because the age of childhood continues until the age of 18 years.

Abeer Chalabi added that "despite the measures taken by the Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs at different levels to reduce the level of poverty, but it is not enough, but it requires comprehensive government plans to find suitable alternatives to reduce poverty." "The Ministry of Labor grants the unemployed a social protection salary, as well as people with special needs, as well as soft loans that provide income to the family, but these measures are certainly not enough."

For his part, Abdul-Zahra al-Hindawi, spokesman of the Ministry of Planning, said in a press statement that «the indicators talked about (UNICEF) close to reality, as there are about 9 million Iraqis under the threat of poverty, mostly children», noting that «there So-called emergency or transitory poverty as a result of the war on an organized organization, where the war increased displacement among the population, and thus increased from 18% in 2014 to about 28% now due to large-scale displacement. "The Ministry of Planning has launched the National Poverty Reduction Strategy based on a set of vocabulary, including a sustainable return of displaced persons, because if their return is secured, the poverty line will decline, in addition to other measures, including housing, health, education and income, Where the plan aims to reduce the ratio to 25 per cent.
