8/24/2011 6:48 PM

BAGHDAD / Aswat al-Iraq: The head of the Red Cross organization in Iraq disclosed today that there are one million Iraqi women who subsidize their families, calling on the Iraqi government to assist them with the social security formations.
 
In a press conference, attended by Aswat al-Iraq, Magny Barh said that "Iraqi women are the most affected by the armed conflicts because they have to subsidize their families after their husbands were killed."
 
The Red Cross conducted a study on 119 women, in which results shown that 70 percent spend more than they earn and 40 percent of the families send their children to work.
 
"These women need governmental support through the social security programs, who cannot get due to complicated registration procedures," he  added.
