In October 2016, the Iraqi armed forces launched a military offensive to retake Mosul, Iraq. Since then, over one million civilians have been displaced. 

In recent weeks, the final assault was launched on Mosul’s Old City, where hundreds of thousands of people were still trapped and the fighting considerably intensified. Handicap International's teams have been taking action to protect civilians and support disabled and vulnerable people.
