  • Description:  Dumou’, 10, is a second grade student at the Al-Huda Primary School for Girls in the Al Basra-al Qadima (ancient city) neighbourhood of the southern city of Basra. She is two years behind because she left school for that period. Her grandmothers, two cousins and her mother’s first husband were killed in bombing raids in the 1990 Gulf War . "I hate war, because it will destroy our house and school", she says. Her name, Dumou’, means ‘tears’ in Arabic..Additional Info:.Until January 2003, the situation of children and women in Iraq remains critical. One million children under five in southern and central Iraq continue to suffer from chronic malnutrition. Some 60 per cent of the entire population depend on monthly Government food rations, making them extremely vulnerable to any disruption in these supplies in the event of conflict. Widespread poverty and crumbling infrastructure, the result of years of conflict and 12 years of international economic sanctions, have affected all sectors, including massive deterioration of the country's water and sanitation systems.
