An estimated 15,000 Yazidi refugees have fled Iraq to the Newroz refugee camp in neighbouring Syria.
Since Tuesday, the UNHCR has been driving refugees the 37 miles (60km) from the border, which many have had to walk for days to reach.
The refugees arrive exhausted and deeply traumatized, their feet covered in blisters, having spent days on Mt Sinjar in searing temperatures without food, water or shelter after fleeing for their lives, then walking many hours – in some cases days – to find safety.
UNHCR, with other UN agencies, has provided tents, plastic sheets, blankets, hygiene kits and other household items. An airlift of 2,000 tents and 5,000 mattresses is expected in the coming days.
