EMERGENCY SUPPORT AND EDUCATION
TO DISPLACED CHILDREN

Context

Mission Enfance has been working in Iraq since 1992. Emergency missions, reconstruction of schools and villages, have led the association to have some experience in this area.

1.5 million refugees from Syria and displaced populations of Mossul, Sinjar and the Nineveh Plain have found refuge in Iraqi Kurdistan. They are, for most, settled under tents in camps, awaiting the end of the war to go home. The damages caused in the Nineveh Plain and the actual war for the recovery of Mossul do not allow the displaced populations to return to their lands. In Sinjar, region liberated in 2015, the villages, although terribly damaged, is progressively welcoming back the displaced Yezidi of August 2014. We are participating to this return by the construction of the schools in Hadiqa and Chuorka. In 2017, we will be building other schools and health centers to increase the Yezidis’ impulse to return.

Also, we are pursuing our support to the functioning of the educational centre we have created in the Yezidi displaced camp of Sharya, North of Iraq. Also, we will be pursuing our support towards the students’ transport and heating for the Nineveh Plain Christian displaced populations in the two centres of Ainkawa.
