The Government has announced the four charities that will share £3 million to provide humanitarian aid in northern Iraq.
International Development Secretary Justine Greening announced the charities are: Mercy Corps, Save the Children, the International Rescue Committee and Action Against Hunger.
The funding is being provided through her department's Rapid Response Facility, which fast-tracks money to charities in the event of a humanitarian crisis.
It is part of the £8 million Iraq aid package released by the Government on Thursday.
Britain is to contribute another £15 million towards helping the Philippines recover from the devastation wreaked by typhoon Haiyan, International Development Secretary Justine Greening has announced.
The aid boost - which takes the total UK contribution to £75 million - will help fund efforts to rebuild homes and get people back into jobs.
One of the biggest storms on record, Haiyan killed at least 5,700, destroyed or damaged the homes of six million people and directly affected another nine million.
Among reconstruction efforts being supported by the aid is the rebuilding of homes, schools and hospitals, the restoration of public services and employment programmes.
Efforts to revive the devastated rural economy include reconstructing irrigation systems, replanting coconut trees and re-establishing fisheries.
