Teleskuf, located at 30 km away from Mosul, suffered heavy damage in 2014 after Daesh went through it. The stigma of terrorist horror is still on the streets, but life is getting better now. Families have returned home to rebuild their city. They have strong commitment. However, they need your help to revive economic activity.

Three years ago, because of the Islamic State’s Organization, we left Teleskuf. When we came back, thanks to this solidarity loan project, I bought my stock back and started working again. Thank you SOS Chrétiens d’Orient. 

After distributing emergency aid, SOS Chrétiens d’Orient participated in the sustainable economic development of the village of Teleskuf. The aim is to allow Christians who have returned to take root in their city, supporting small businesses and continuing to live without SOS Chrétiens d’Orient. They are the future of their city, the key to their future.

By funding this project, you help them to be self-sufficient. These projects do not just last a day or a week; they last a lifetime! More than 20 solidarity loan projects were launched in 2017 and benefited from loans ranging from $2385 to $5960.

There is no donation too small, each euro contributes to improve concretely Christians’ lives. Please support a solidarity project and relaunch the economic activity of an artisan!
