BAGHDAD, Living in government-established camps, some 130,000 displaced Iraqis from Mosul try to survive on whatever the authorities and humanitarian organizations might offer in terms of relief aid and food.
As a result of the ongoing operation to liberate Mosul from the so-called Islamic State (IS), a number of civil society volunteers began to distribute millions of loaves to help feed the displaced.
Muhannad Al-Awamri, a media coordinator and a civil society volunteer, told KUNA that the bread distribution campaign had received strong support from different components of the Iraqi society.
The volunteer, who's a representative of the Nineveh Governorate network for civil society organizations, revealed that their efforts was not only supported by the Iraqi government, but also was backed up fellow Arab countries such as Kuwait and the UAE.
He hoped that this effort will help ease the suffering of the displaced, affirming that the people of Iraq will stand together against the terror propagated by the IS terrorists In 2016, the Ministry of Displacement and Migration delivered thousands of food baskets and offered assistance to Iraqis escaping from Mosul.
On October 16, the Iraqi army - along with local and international allies- launched the "Battle of Mosul" operation which aims at ridding Iraq from the infamous IS.
