This category is reserved for rebuilding the homes that were damaged or destroyed by ISIS. As the situation settles in the Nineveh Plains, our focus is shifting toward getting people back to their ancestral land by rebuilding their homes
COMPLETELY REBUILDING 2 HOMES COMPLETELY DESTROYED BY ISLAMIC STATE
This was the longest running project in Shlama's history. Due to the town's security issue, and the blockade placed by various militias and armies, it took us exactly one year to finally finish these two homes destroyed by the Islamic State in Bashiqa. 11 displaced people (5 who have been living in Baghdad, while the other family of 6 had been in Erbil for close to 5 years now) were able to return to their homes!
REBUILDING 3 APARTMENTS BURNED BY THE ISLAMIC STATE
This project involved the complete renovation of 3 apartments in Bakhdeda! 16 people in 3 families had been living in Ashty Camp for the previous 4 years, were finally returned to their town.
REBUILDING A HOME IN BAKHDEDA
This family from Bakhdeda (aka Qaraqosh or Hamdaneya) was kicked out of their home for over 4 years. Even after the expulsion of ISIS from their village, the home was not able to be inhabited. Thanks to the donors, we were able to bring this family back to their home!
