Legal Assistance for displaced iraqis by UNHCR

UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, with its partners has provided legal assistance to help more than two and a half thousand Iraqis displaced as a result of the Mosul offensive receive new civil identity cards and other documents that were lost, damaged or destroyed as they fled their homes seeking safety. Civil identity cards are vital for Iraqi citizens to be able to travel and pass through checkpoints to access safe areas. In addition, these cards are required for families to be able to access public services, such as food assistance, education, healthcare and housing assistance. UNHCR protection teams have worked with partners Qandil, Harikar NGO, CDO (Civil Development Organisation) and INTERSOS, who have provided legal assistance through lawyers to facilitate issuance of required documents to displaced Iraqis.
