Despite the ongoing violence, the UN continues to support the Iraqi people as they begin to rebuild their country. Much of Iraq's infrastructure has suffered damage and decay of the decades, making running water and electricity unreliable in many areas of the country.
As part of the ongoing UN Assistance Mission in Iraq, UNDP is working to restore the electricity and sanitation systems to vital institutions. Through repairs to the electrical grid, as well as the installation of several small diesel generators, places like Red Cross, hospitals, and schools are able provide regular services.
