Kujok is a village in Northern Iraq, not far away from Mosul and from the Syrian border. Mohammed Yousif is the first person who returned from a camp in a neighboring province back to his place of origin which was completely destroyed. One of the most urgent needs was to restore the village’s water network. To have enough clean water would motivate others to come back, too. ACT-member Lutheran World Federation (LWF) provided this support in November 2021 together with the Dijla Agricultural Association and The Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund (PWRDF), partially supported by the ACT Appeal.
“Seven families came back after having had a water borehole, and by now there are 114 persons living in Kujok village. In the surrounding villages, 7,657 returnees were supported by means of access to clean water”, says Dr. Prabin Manandhar, Country Representative of LWF. See in this video how Mohammed Yousif described the situation in the area at the start of the project.
