An extended family in their temporary accommodation in an abandoned building on the grounds of Koya University. The family are from the Sinjar area and fled in August when ISIS suddenly attacked the nearby villages. They came here because they knew the manager of the University and he offered them this building to stay in. The group have received unconditional cash assistance from UNHCR and use it to buy clothes for their children, flour to make bread and kerosene for heating and cooking.
