The civillian crisis in Iraq is getting worse day by day, a report form the country’s leading aid agency warned. Collapsing healthcare, rising poverty, unemployment and long power cuts are all contributing to the suffering.
More than 100,000 families have also been forced to leave their homes in the past year because of the violence, the International Committee of the Red Cross said.
The report, Civillians Without Protection says that about a third of the population lives in poverty, while more than five per cent live in extreme poverty.
