To escape civil war and resume their education 5,000 university students have fled from violence-hit provinces of Baghdad, Diyala and Anbar to northern cities of Mosul and Kirkuk. The most serious problem facing these students is accommodation. A project will be carried out to turn certain viable buildings in these cities into dormitories in order to provide impoverished students with accommodation facilities.
Project Name: Opening dormitories in Iraq
Project Cost: $36,000
Country: Mosul-Kirkuk, Iraq
