Winter relief in Northern Iraq

The Qasm family inspects the food box given to them by LWF. A ration for 15 days contains 10 kg of rice, lentils, salt, tea, beans, caned vegetables and chicken meat, sugar, pasta, bulgur and four bottles of cooking oil. It is supposed to last for 15 days. 
The Yazidi family lives an unfinished builling in Chamnke near Dohuk. LWF provides them with basic food. The house they live in was given to them by a local pastoralist, in return they look after his animals. Still there are no doors, proper windows r floor insulation, and the family does not have winter clothes.
