Nineveh Plains

Where things stand: Locating and making introductions with a local Iraqi coordinator, with a group of Christian families who have returned to Qaraqosh, or Karmalesh, depending on which location is more feasible.

What we are doing: A preliminary budget would include:

Preparation, equipment and labor for digging a well: $1,200-2,000 per well

Project coordinator: TBD depending on scope for a specific water well

St. George’s, Baghdad

Where things stand: St. George’s Anglican Church is currently in construction on the new school building, slated for completion 2018.

What we are doing: The priest at St. George’s has provided the budget to furnish the school with computers, desks, chairs and other furnishings. SWIC has already committed to provide bulletin board and iPads, but there is so much more to do as you can see from the pictures below!
