A number of Iraqi families who were displaced by ISIS have settled into the mountains in the northern corner of Iraq, near the border with Iran. During the winter, this area can receive as much as three feet of snow.
The 150 displaced families who live here were staying in tents but recently upgraded to concrete structures with concrete floors. Even so, the conditions are damp and cold. Some of the families hang tarps on the sides of their structures to protect against the rain and snow that tend to absorb into the blocks and seep inside.
To help these families survive through the cold winter, CAM provided kerosene for them. In the photo above, some of these displaced Iraqis present their identity documents for verification before receiving the kerosene.
