A young Syrian refugee girl sits in a chair outside of a barber shop in Domiz refugee camp. There are many instances of refugees in the camp opening up businesses that cater to fellow refugees and the host community. Mobile phone repair shops, bakeries and tailors are common within the camp. Domiz refugee camp was opened by UNHCR and partner organizations near the city of Dohuk in early April 2012 to provide a safe haven for Syrian refugees fleeing into neighbouring Iraq. Since then, more than 16,500 Syrians have come to call Domiz home, and there are approximately 50,000 Syrian refugees (including those in Domiz) now sheltering in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq.
