During the summer 2014 the political upheaval Iraq region has reached worldwide attention. The town of Halabja is in Iraqi Kurdistan – is in the relatively stable region of the western Kurdish Autonomous Region . The town has been affected by the influx of refugees from the Syrian conflict, and from internal displacement of people from within Iraq. However the conflict has not reached Halabja, and the community and young people that use the playground are safe and well. This only heightens the importance for such a project, to ensure young people have a space to play and be children amongst turmoil.
