REPLACING THE WATER-WELL PIPE IN ORDER TO RESTORE WATER IN BANDWAYA
In Bandwaya we finished fixing the water to the entire village! Due to the pipe that went from the well to the village not dug deep enough, it was destroyed by passing trucks as they drove over it, leaving many cracks, and ultimately making the water weak. We removed the old pipe, dug the way 1.5 meters deep, and installed a new pipe. The village’s 40 families are happy now that water is at a normal level
FOOD FOR 26 FAMILIES WHO ESCAPED BOMBING FROM TURKISH JETS IN SHARANISH
We have been asked once again to assist families who have fled bombings of Turkish jets. 26 Assyrian and Kurdish families from Sharanish have become displaced once again after missiles targeted PKK. Now the families are seeking shelter in Zakho. Shlama provided one month of food, and SEED foundation provided psychological support and conducted an assessment of the situation.
