July 13, 2018 – Iraq: Repaired Houses Spur Resettlement


Christians in the West have played a crucial role in reviving communities in Iraq ravaged by extremists in the ancient Nineveh Plains – according to a Church leader who has helped pioneer their resettlement in towns and villages which have been their home for thousands of years.

With latest reports stating that about half of the inhabitants have gone back to the Christian-majority town of Qaraqosh (Baghdeda), Fr. George Jahola said: “a lot” of people were now returning there from Lebanon and Turkey as well as from Erbil and other displacement centers in Iraq.
