Syrian refugee children clean dishes outside of their family's tent in Domiz refugee camp. While there is currently sufficient water to provide for the camp, drainage is a major concern as pools of dirty, standing water can lead to poor sanitation and health concerns. 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.
