Constructing 80 more shelters for refugee families

Peace Winds by the end of August completed the final 80 shelters at Darashakran, northern Iraq.  The construction is done by the families and employed refugees.  The families eagerly move into their new homes.  

Peace Winds follows-up the new home owners with surveys measuring satisfaction with the construction and environment, plus questions what can be improved. 

Peace Winds is exploring working with a local NGO to involve women in activities for their family and home, such as painting the interiors, sewing clothes and curtains.  Events for the women and children are strengthening the community and reducing isolation and withdrawal.

Peace Winds in September 2019 begins the second year of the two year U.S. State Department funded program building shelters in northern Iraq.  During year one of the U.S. State PRM Bureau project, Peace Winds has constructed 801 shelters. 

Peace Winds appreciates your support to assist the refugee families as they adjust to the new homes and environment.
