Electrification

The war has led to the destruction of land infrastructure, including roads and power lines, in tens of towns and villages of northern Iraq.

Due to power outage in that region drilled wells and water pumps are out of order cutting entire towns and villages off from access to drinking water. It was crucial to help those communities restore electrical power. Although it had seemed to be a very difficult project beyond the capacity of a charity foundation, thanks to your support we did manage to carry it through.

In October 2017, we managed to bring electricity back to Jafriyya, a home to more than a thousand families.

From the beginning of the war, we were the first organization to reach that mountain village with any sort of help.

Within a few weeks, our local partnering organization hired a geodesist who demarcated the electric traction line. We rented an excavator that drilled holes for poles which were then embedded and sealed with concrete. Local craftsmen who volunteered to help managed to raise 160 such poles. Next they ran 6 km-long wires from a nearby town and distributed them within the village. The cost was just under 24,000 PLN (about 6,000 USD).

A few months later we helped to repair the power grid in Wardiya.

Its inhabitants had to deal with regular power blackouts. Additionally, the damaged power grid was causing a real threat to their health and life. The cost of that project was even lower and amounted to around 10,000 PLN (2,500 USD).

We are planning to restore electricity in other towns and villages. It is one of the most important aspects of infrastructure reconstruction.
