    More than three million Iraqis have been forced from their homes in recent years due to conflict. Among them, about a million who have been displaced because of the current battle for the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL, also known as ISIS) group's stronghold of Mosul.

    Their struggle is made harder as they try to cope during the fasting month of Ramadan. But volunteers across Iraq are trying to help.
