Intervention area: Iraqi Kurdistan
Local partners: Deir Mar yam Al Adhraa Monastic Community
Italian partners: Francesco Realmonte Onlus Association, Friends Association of Deir Mar Musa, RiRes - Catholic University of the Sacred Heart (scientific supervision)
Aim: Raise funds to support the maintenance and use costs of the monastery school bus that could take the children of refugee families to school.
The project, therefore, intends to provide insurance coverage for the school bus, its maintenance, fuel and salary for the driver who will also take the children to catechism. The same would be available to children during the holidays for all the activities of the monastery or parish
Background: Iraq has recently been the subject of a strong wave of unemployment protests, exacerbated by rampant corruption and a lack of access to essential services.
The economic and social situation in Iraq, and in particular in Kurdistan, has clearly worsened due to COVID19 which is also creating enormous economic damage in this territory.
Numerous refugee families, mostly from Syria or the Nineveh Plain in Iraq, live in the Sabunkaran neighborhood in the city of Sulaymaniyya. Some families are housed in the monastery of the Community of Deir Mar Musa, founded by Father Paolo dall'Oglio, and need to have the 17 children and teenagers present join and attend the school located on the other side of the city. The government, in fact, reopened the schools last October.
