School attendance of 10 000 children in Iraq improved through school feeding programme
Millions of children, especially girls, around the world do not attend school because their families cannot afford it. Another tens of millions of them go to school hungry. This has negative effect on their concentration and school performance. The situation is twice as bad in conflict-affected countries compared to stable ones, in case of girls 2.5 times. We provided free school feeding for over 10 000 children from poor families in Iraq.
