Beredskabsstyrelsen will help set up a camp able to house 15,000-20,000
The emergency preparedness authorities, Beredskabsstyrelsen, is sending a team of experts and equipment to northern Iraq today to assist with the establishment of a refugee camp.
The aircraft carrying the gear and experts will fly to Iraq from Herning via Sweden. The trade and development minister, Mogens Jensen, has set aside two million kroner to assist Beredskabsstyrelsen in establishing a camp to house 15,000-20,000 internally displaced people in the region.
”The humanitarian needs in Iraq are immense and we must show our solidarity,” Jensen said in a press release.
“It’s positive that we can quickly and effectively accommodate UN’s requests to help the families who have been displaced by ISIL’s movements in northern Iraq.”
