Caption

Safe arrival at Qaymawa camp after flight from Mosul. Internally displaced Iraqi men and boys carry bags containing UNHCR’s winter tent liners, designed to keep them warm during cold spells.

Background: After two years trapped inside Iraq’s second largest city, thousands of Iraqis are relieved to be free of tyrannical militant rule. But escaping to freedom can also be dangerous: Many of Mosul’s children are caught on the front lines of the battle to retake the city from ISIS, and many need urgent assistance.
