World Vision is one of the first agencies to start supporting children at a new camp just 25km (15 miles) from Mosul, as a military offensive to re-take the city continues.

Child protection staff are creating safe spaces for children in the recently-constructed Zelican camp, north-east of Mosul.

The new camp comes as a military operation, announced a week ago, advances towards the city. Aid agencies fear that up to a million people could flee the fighting.
