Emergency Assistance to Populations Affected by the Al-Anbar Crisis
This operation has been modified as per Budget Revision 2 (see below).
In response to the conflict in Al-Anbar governorate in Iraq, Emergency Operation 200677 will provide life-saving, time-critical food assistance to internally displaced
persons, vulnerable households within the conflict zones, and vulnerable groups in areas with high concentrations of internally displaced persons due to the crisis.
As a result of increased fighting in Al-Anbar governorate, specifically around the cities of Fallujah and Ramadi, thousands of families have become displaced since 30
December 2013. As of 12 February 2014, the Ministry of Displacement and Migration announced that more than 62,000 families have been displaced due to the
armed conflict within and outside Al-Anbar governorate and are in need of humanitarian assistance. People fled the conflict with few possessions, and do not
have regular access to food and other basic needs.
