06/09/2019 Washington D.C. (International Christian Concern) – In the path of destruction left behind by ISIS, Iraqi Christians are attempting to return to their homes in Qaraqosh. However, they have returned to the utter devastation of their property and infrastructure. When ISIS realized that they were losing ground, they attempted to destroy as much property as possible.
The weakened infrastructure made the town nearly uninhabitable. One of the major concerns of those returning was finding a source of clean water once again, as the water they were receiving from Mosul was muddy and inconsistent.
To help these Christians resettle, ICC has drilled wells throughout Qaraqosh. Recently, we developed a well in an all-girls school of approximately 500 students. The well will serve both the school and 15 families in the surrounding community.
