Your Impact: Mosul
Inside a battle-scarred city
Mosul’s families have gained freedom, but the war is still having devastating consequences.
After more than two years trapped inside Iraq’s second-largest city, thousands of Iraqis are relieved to be free of tyrannical militant rule. But life has taken on a new kind of hardship.
Nearly 530,916 people have been displaced from Mosul since the offensive began to retake the city from extremists in October 2016.
Now living in camps or bullet-ridden homes with no power, Mosul’s families are in desperate need of assistance. Your generous support has helped us hand out thousands of kerosene heaters, blankets, sets of winter clothing and other emergency supplies to families uprooted by the conflict.
