Context

From 2014 to 2017, Mosul and the Nineveh province saw fierce fighting between the Islamic State (IS) terrorist militia and other Islamist groups. Since being liberated from IS in July 2017, the western part of Mosul, in particular, has suffered from the large-scale destruction of public and private infrastructure. Social services such as health care and education are limited and very few residents have paid jobs.

Objective

In the governorate of Nineveh and in the city of Mosul, basic public infrastructure, such as schools and hospitals is rebuilt, and lives of the population is improved.

Approach

The activities of RRM include rehabilitation and reconstruction of basic public social infrastructure, improvement of income generating measures, and peacebuilding mechanisms.

It supports the reconstruction of schools and a relocatable health care facility. As a result, 1.6 million people in Nineveh Governorate and the city of Mosul will regain access to essential public services.

The construction of the first relocatable hospital  in Mosul has now been completed. This health facility consists of 150 beds and will offer up to 1,500 outpatients and 150 inpatients a day the opportunity to receive adequate basic and special medical treatments. Furthermore, it consists of an emergency room, an operating theatre, an intensive care unit, a laboratory, a computed tomography (CT scan), and a cardiology station.

The project supports the rehabilitation of six schools where more than 12,000 children can be educated in a safe environment.

RRM promotes livelihood and peacebuilding activities that benefit more than 10,000 people. In the course of this, teachers were trained and about 2380 people were able to earn their own income through “cash for work” activities.

The project implements vocational and technical training initiatives in the private sector and facilitates business (re)activation grants.
