Kuwait opens school for Mosul IDPs in Erbil

By Rudaw 13/4/2017

ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – Five hundred boys and girls displaced from Mosul can now study at a school opened in Erbil by the Kuwait Consulate on Thursday.

Iraq’s Education Minister Muhammed Iqbal thanked Kuwait for the valuable initiative of the school, which consists of 14 classrooms housed in portables.

The school is one of five established by Kuwait for internally displaced persons (IDPs) in Hassarok, Kasnazan, Hassan Sham camp, and in Duhok governorate, detailed project supervisor Nassrin Suqi.

Kuwait has also constructed three health centres for IDPs, Suqi added.

“The Kuwait government started a launch for humanitarian aid in cooperation with the Iraqi government,” the Kuwait Consul in Erbil, Omar Ahmed al-Kandari, told Rudaw. “The aid consists of a food basket for each IDP family, in addition to providing stationary and backpacks for 600 students who study in the school constructed by Kuwait.”

More than 3 million Iraqis are currently displaced throughout the country.

It is good that neighbours help idp's, but are they also "helping" with the syllabus and dressing codes? There is usually a certain problem with the hands that feed. In Skandinavia some rich "sand countries" would like to built massive mosqs here, but it is widely known fact that they also command what should be teached in them. And we do not like fundamental islamic propaganda into our soil! Threfore mosqs are not welcome to our soil. Period.
