Before ISIS invaded Qeraqosh in 2014, Bassam worked on his family’s generational chicken farm. His father had been a chicken farmer in the 1980s, and Bassam knew since he was a child that he would one day work on the chicken farm as well. And he did, until ISIS arrived.
ISIS completely ransacked farms throughout Qeraqosh, destroying them and using them both as a lookout and point of cover from coalition maneuvers. With the destruction of these farms, Qeraqosh’s economy collapsed and countless families, including Bassam’s, were displaced.
ICC partnered with SWIC to help Bassam restart his chicken farm for the second time. In a three-stage process, our team ensured that Bassam received all of the necessary resources to start and maintain a healthy and sustainable farm.
