The UK has pledged to provide a month's worth of water and medicine for 12,000 Iraqi refugees who have escaped Mount Sinjar and reached a camp across the Syrian border.
British funding will support the International Rescue Committee, which is running the Newroz refugee camp.
International Development Secretary Justine Greening said:
These 12,000 Yazidi refugees have escaped a siege, walked 60km in 50 degree heat and found their way across the Syrian border to a refugee camp that used to house just 20 families. They have shown immense courage to make it this far and we are extremely concerned for their wellbeing. By supporting the work of the International Rescue Committee, Britain will provide vital medicine and water to give immediate assistance.
