ACN commissioned a Damage Assessment Survey to catalogue the level of destruction of almost 13,000 homes as well as the damage to schools, health clinics and religious buildings.
According to another survey carried out by ACN, 41% of displaced Christians in Erbil want to return to their native villages and 46% are considering it.
250 million dollars are needed for the rebuilding of almost 13,000 homes in the Nineveh Plains.
ACN is appealing to the international community for a «Marshall Plan» for Iraq so that thousands of displaced people can return to their homes.
The NRC (Nineveh Reconstruction Committee) was established on 27 March 2017 and it unites the three main Christian Churches in the area (Syriac Orthodox, Syriac Catholic and Chaldean Catholic).
Its objective is to rebuild the homes belonging to the internally displaced Christians who fled their villages in the Nineveh Plains.
In 3 villages in the Nineveh Plains ACN has already begun the reconstruction of the first 105 houses belonging to displaced Christians families.
