Iraqi refugees at UN offices in Amman

More Iraqi Children Coming to Sweden

Although the number of Iraqi refugees coming to Sweden has been dropping, the number of Iraqi family members related to those already here has almost doubled in the last year.

Over 2700 Iraqi children have received residence permits in the first half of the this year - more than all of the year before.

Some of the Swedish communities receiving refugees and their families say this is causing housing shortages in some areas – and that youngsters are suffering by having to live in hotels and other temporary quarters instead of settling in permanent homes.
