Syrian refugees in Iraq, risk losing access to basic food supplies

Money is running out to help families with basic day to day items, while amidst harsh economic conditions, refugees from the decade long conflict across Syria are often “drowning” in debt, they have no way or repaying, according to a news release from the UN agencies.

86 percent of refugees based in the camps, remain food insecure or vulnerable to food insecurity following a string of socio-economic shocks, said the agencies.

The impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on employment in 2020 and the consequent devaluation of the Iraqi dinar are still being felt while price rises caused by the war in Ukraine continue to reduce people’s access to basic food.
