The volatile and increasingly complex situation in Iraq, and the consequent, continuously erupting emergencies, have forced stakeholders including IDPs themselves, local authorities, and agencies that assist IDPs, to allow, construct, or establish camp settings that do not necessarily meet minimum humanitarian standards.

It’s been more than a decade since the students at the Harry C Primary school in Masorie, Sierra Leone, were able to drink from the well on school grounds. Now a UNICEF-supported rehabilitation project is bringing clean water back to schoolchildren and villagers in the community.
· With thanks to the funds received from the Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF), UNICEF was able to scale-up its WASH response in drought affected areas of Puntland and Somaliland. Provision of safe water through vouchers is ongoing and 10 boreholes have been rehabilitated to date. In addition, 5,500 hygiene kits benefitting 33,000 people have been distributed to support safe hygiene practices and water treatment at household level.
· More than one million people – 20 percent of them children under the age of 5 – have now received life-saving assistance from UNICEF, WFP and their partners in South Sudan through 82 joint emergency missions to communities hardest-hit by conflict. As the long rainy season begins, UNICEF and WFP will continue to reach remote communities. The agencies are also working to establish or reopen, wherever possible, permanent humanitarian services to communities who are without access to food, healthcare, nutrition, education and clean water.
