Safe Home

The people of Iraq, like people everywhere, deserve and need safe homes. Following wars and the occupation of many areas of the country by ISIL, Iraq is littered with explosive devices, including thousands of IEDs. Major population centers and small villages are unsafe for the people returning home. The United Nations is helping the Government of Iraq to clear these hazards village by village, street by street.  The people of Iraq, like people everywhere, deserve and need safe homes.
