On World Refugee Day 2019, June 20, we put out the call. We asked you, our compassionate donors, to help us build 10 wells in the Ninawa province, Iraq, so that families displaced by violence could return home. Your response was overwhelming and we are delighted to give you this update recently received from the field, with our thanks for reaching out to our brothers and sisters in need around the world.
When families fled northern Iraq from fear of ISIS-related violence, you saw their plight. And when you learned those families couldn’t return home because they didn’t have access to safe water, you gave.
Because you responded to our World Refugee Day campaign, 10 new wells are pumping clean, safe water to farms and family homes in Ninawa province. Because you care, families can return home to farm and live where they have for generations. At a time when there are more people forced to flee by violence and disaster at any time since World War II, you helped return people home.
