Mosul, Bartella and Baadre
Mosul is the capital city of Nineveh and is the second biggest city in Iraq. ISIS occupied Mosul for over three years. During Mosul’s liberation from ISIS the city was destroyed. Most families returned back to a destroyed city and are now rebuilding their lives back. SDRE works with local community leaders, local NGOs and food distributors to provide aid to the local communities, develop strong and ongoing relationships, provide post-crisis workshops, and develop work programs that will help rebuild the communities after the crisis of recent years.
