World Refugee Day 2002: Iraq

World Refugee Day 2002: Iraq

20 June 2002

Kids play in a neighbourhood populated mostly by Iraqi refugees. Because refugees are not allowed to work in Syria, children often must take informal jobs to help support their families.

UNHCR statistics, publications, and articles were sent to journalists in Northern Iraq. A refugee woman was interviewed by Gulan Magazine. A UNHCR video in Kurdish and footage were shown on TV.
