The Prime Minister announced a further £20million in humanitarian support and £30million in stabilisation support to the Republic of Iraq during her visit to Baghdad in November 2017. Additionally, at the recent Kuwait Conference for Reconstruction the Minister for the Middle East pledged £1.5 million of new funding for the repair of housing in Mosul through the UN’s Funding Facility for Stabilisation which brings the total number of houses that UK funds will repair to 2,000. The Minister also pledged £8 million of new funding, delivered through UNICEF, to improve the water networks and sanitation facilities for 600,000 people, and to deliver better sanitation in health facilities and schools.
