The United Nations' agency for refugees said on Tuesday that it is launching one of its largest humanitarian aid by sending supplies to more than half a million civilians displaced in Iraq.

The agency will send supplies by air, road convoys, and sea shipments through neighboring countries.

"The major focus is on improving living conditions for the displaced in the region, particularly people without shelter or housing," said Adrian Edwards, spokesperson for the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).

"Conditions remain desperate for those without access to suitable shelter, people struggling to find food and water to feed their families, and those without access to primary medical care.

"Many are still coming to grips with the tragedy they" have been through in recent weeks " fleeing homes with nothing, and many trying to cope with the loss of loved ones. Emergency support is an urgent need that we are trying to meet," he told reporters in Geneva.
