SUPPORT FOR THE REFUGEES AND DISPLACED CHILDREN

Context

Mission Enfance has been working in Iraqi Kurdistan since 1992. Emergency, reconstruction of schools and villages have led the association to have a real expertise of this region.

Still 1.5 million refugees from Syria and displaced people from Mossul, Sinjar and the Nineveh Plain have found refuge in the north of Iraq. Most of them are still living in tent camps, as tensions have not subsided despite the end of the war against IE, and peace has yet to be restored in the areas reclaimed from Daesh. On the other hand, a huge amount of reconstruction work needs to be undertaken to enable the return of these displaced people. In Sinjar, an area liberated in December 2015, the villages, although terribly damaged, are gradually taking in displaced Yezidi in August 2014. We are contributing to this return by building schools.

 

Goal

Educating displaced Yezidi children in Iraqi Kurdistan, enabling the return of displaced Yezidi to their villages, offering the right to university to Iraqi minorities (Yezidi, Chaldean), participating in the stabilization of Iraq. To give education to Kurdish refugee children from Syria.

In 2020, we will finalise the construction of a school in the refugee camp for Kurdish refugees from Syria in Bardarash.

We also support the operation of our educational centre that we have created in the Yezidi camp for displaced peoples in Sharya, in Northern Iraq. In addition, our support for the life base for 26 female Yezidi and Chaldean students at the University of Mosul will be continued.
