Included in the package are;

Supplies include reusable filtration containers filled with clean water, tarpaulins and basic shelter equipment, and solar lights that can also recharge mobile phones to enable communication.

The UK is releasing an £8 million package of emergency humanitarian assistance to get lifesaving aid to tens of thousands of people across northern and central Iraq who have fled ISIL terrorists. This aid includes £2 million of emergency humanitarian supplies for 75,000 people.

Good to see Lifesaver water filtration being included

I wonder why the RAF’s C17 fleet is not being used?

Could it be they are not cleared for air despatch, surely some mistake?
