UK aid from the British people

Iraq

Summary

Daesh’s expansion into Iraq in 2014 created a major humanitarian crisis. Over 10 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance, including over 3 million Iraqis that have been displaced from their homes. Since the summer of 2014, the UK has announced £169.5 million of humanitarian assistance. This includes £90 million announced in 2016, with a substantial element supporting partners preparing and responding to Mosul.

Help with Sector and Budget Figures
Please note that although budgets are generally split by year, some departments publish budgets that span multiple years. These are represented in the first year of their allocation. Cross-government allocations such as Prosperity Fund and Conflict, Stability and Security Fund are known to duplicate budgets published by other departments, as well as using multi-year budgets.
