STORYLINE
On Monday (21 Nov), the United Nations children’s agency (UNICEF) and partners distributed aid to new families arriving at the Khazir displacement camp.

Ghanim Husma from the Tahrir district of Mosul said that his journey out of the city was “a tragedy” with “so many explosions.”

Last week, a UNICEF-led multi-agency humanitarian convoy entered Mosul for the first time in two years. Trucks arrived with enough emergency supplies to last 15,000 children and their families -- a total of 30,000 people -- for a month.

UNICEF also set up a temporary learning centre in Hassan Sham Camp. To date, over 1,000 children have been registered. The agency is planning to provide them with a series of catch-up classes in math, science, Arabic and English. Most of the children have been out of school for the past two years.

More than 27,000 children and their families, totalling 56,000 people have been displaced to date from in and around Mosul since October 17 – and up to 1.5 million remain trapped inside the city, 600,000 of them children.

UNICEF has reached more than 30,000 children with needed assistance in re-taken communities including in eastern Mosul City since 17 October.
