“This place is a building site. It is always cold. There is no hot water to wash with and when it rains it floods because there is no roof in some of the rooms. A few months ago it was snowing and it was as cold in here as being outside. We all got sick.”

14-year-old Latif* sits shivering on the bare floor in the unfinished building he and his family now call home as he tells me his story.

Like more than 90% of the 2.5 million Iraqis displaced by the ongoing conflict in Iraq, Latif is not living in a camp.

Thousands of children and families have been forced from their homes in the latest round of fighting in Idlib and many more may have to flee as public services have all but collapsed.

Our staff have already documented almost 15,000 people who have fled their homes and it’s feared that thousands more could seek refuge in other parts of the country because of further attacks and destroyed infrastructure.

Staff who were in Idlib say schools and hospitals are closed and only a few shops remain open.

But it will also explore effects of humanitarian action (in historical and contemporary context) that tend not to be captured by the conventional discourse on effectiveness.
