Stafford Clarry sends this comment:
Today, some 5 million displaced Iraqis attract less attention than 150,000 Georgians. Most displaced people are in desperate need of urgent and regular basic assistance - shelter, food, fuel, cooking utensils, health service, personal items, etc.
It is not for want of resources. Actually, there is a surplus. Those most responsible for their welfare have yet to provide the assistance Iraqi refugees and IDPs have urgently needed for months, even years.
In addition to inadequate shelter and food, and other basic living requirements, displaced children are growing up without adequate schooling which will adversely affect Iraq's future even further.
