Hasan Sham Camp is one of several sites being set up to accommodate families fleeing from Mosul City. The camp is around 20 kilometres away from the city centre in Hamdaniya.
Work is still ongoing--at present the newly set up camps can take up to 60,000 individuals, but up to 200,000 are expected to flee in the first days and weeks of the offensive.
NRC will be working in this camp distributing emergency food aid, water and hygiene kits as well as organising education activities and psychosocial help for children.
