More than 55,000 refugees crossed into Iraq from Syria when the border reopened last month. In Arbat refugee camp in northern Iraq, the International Rescue Committee is providing desperately needed humanitarian aid to Syrian refugees. The IRC's Peter Biro is covering the Syrian refugee crisis from Iraq's newest refugee camp.
In Arbat camp alone, we provide 80,000 liters of clean drinking water to Syrian refugees every day.
