Harsh winter wreaks havoc in Iraq refugee camps

Tents in camps are collapsing under the weight of rain and some children have only slippers to wear in freezing cold.

More than three million people have been forced from their homes by ISIL’s onslaught in Iraq.

Many live in deplorable conditions in camps where tents are collapsing under winter rains and some children have only slippers to wear in the freezing cold.

Aid agencies say that getting money and resources to help the displaced is becoming extremely difficult.
