(5 Aug 2018) LEADINTheir summer temperatures may reach the high forties - but Iraqis have an essential way of keeping cool: ice.The ice factory in Irbil produces several tonnes of ice every day, for use in homes, markets and displacement camps.STORYLINEIn this market in Irbil there's only one way to keep the food cool and fresh.Meat is displayed on ice and drinks cans sit in fridges full of it.In northern Iraq there is so little electricity, ice is an essential way of staying cool.You'll find it everywhere: in the markets, at home and in the camps of the displaced. Summer is mercilessly hot in Iraq and there are rarely more than six hours of public electricity a day.This ice factory in Irbil produces several tonnes of ice a day. Customers come and take the ice rods away in cars, lorries and even on their motorbikes. One block is a metre long and weighs about 22 kilos. They cost 500 dinars or about 40 cents. "Our main customers are butchers, fish sellers, restaurants, hotels and public places. Those who hold events. And there are people who buy it to take it to the farm, because there is no electricity there, and we also have our Peshmerga brothers," explains ice factory owner Sherzad Abdullah.One of the biggest buyers are the IDP camps, where there is even less electricity and people have no refrigerators. Some ice gets distributed for free (usually once or twice a week) but residents can also buy their own. The ice truck comes daily and sells these blocks for 2,500 dinars (2.10 US dollars) each — five times the wholesale price, perhaps because only one distributor is allowed in the camp.People will usually buy a small piece of ice to keep their water and sometimes their food cool - but by the evening it has melted and they have to buy more.They may have to spend 1,000 dinars (just under one US dollar) to cover the costs. "I bought this quarter and there are five of us here, it's not enough," explains Nizar Hussein, a displaced man from Tel Afar, after spending his 1,000 dinars.And since no one has any money, they usually have to sell some of the food they receive from the aid organisations to be able to afford this.But in Iraq's punishing summer, when temperatures may rise as high 48 degrees Celsius or even more, there is little choice.Find out more about AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/HowWeWork Twitter: https://twitter.com/AP_Archive Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/APArchives Google+: https://plus.google.com/b/10201102858...
