The report said that one of five families who live outside the camps had children with documentation problems lack of identification documents.
The report added that most of the families that lived under Daesh control lacked at least one of their essential identification documents, i.e., either lost, confiscated, destroyed, or not issued in the first place.
The report conveyed that losing identity documents has severe implications for access to social services, in addition to being a major obstacle to enroll children in school. ■
