Today, we have chosen a picture illustrating the lives of many living in camps in Northern Iraq:

~ Like most people in this camp, this manโ€™s hometown is less than 50km away. Though he yearns to return to the life he had before he was displaced, his home is now in ruins and his town still marred by the dangers of armed conflict.
โ€œEverything was taken from us. The war took it all. It took lives, it took all of our belongings, it took our dignity, it took our identity." ~

If you want to learn more about this manโ€™s life or are interested in seeing more stories of the people we serve and our work of the last years, visit our photo exhibition:
