Due to the conflict in Syria, hundreds of thousands of refugees fled to neighboring countries. Many of them reached Northern Iraq and found refuge in the camp Domeez near the city of Dohuk. Now almost 60.000 refugees live there. The Kurdish Government, the UNHCR (United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees) as well as several other international organizations provide drinking water, food and medical care. There are also three schools. But since refugees are constantly arriving at the camp, the situation is getting worse.
