War Child Canada is deeply concerned about the worsening humanitarian condition of Iraq’s 12 million children. The United Nations estimates that as many as 500,000 people, half of them children, will require emergency medical treatment as a result of the current war in Iraq. Hospitals and clinics will run out of essential medicines within weeks. Families have limited food reserves, and growing food shortages could lead to malnutrition and starvation.
