Kuwait Commits $200 million for IDPs

By Simon Kent.

The Kuwaiti government has announced that $200 million will be dispersed to internally displaced people–refugees– throughout the south, centre and north of Iraq.

The aid will be distributed through the Kuwaiti Red Crescent and assist some of the 5 million conflict displaced people within Iraq. According to the Kuwaiti Red Crescent, the aid will go on food, housing and medical assistance.

It is expected that much of the aid will be used in the Kurdish area of northern Iraq, currently home to a great many of the IDPs in Iraq.
