The United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN-Habitat) welcomes the additional contribution of the French Government in the amount of 425,882 euros to support refugees who have recently returned to their regions of residence and are trying to rebuild their lives. There are Yazidi families among the refugees.
The proposed project is aimed at improving the rights and living conditions that contribute to the sustainable return of Yezidi families to the areas of Shangal and Baaj. Infrastructure damage remains one of the main obstacles that may prevent many refugees from returning to their areas of origin.
France's timely contribution will be used to strengthen support for approximately 27,000 people by providing legal assistance to 200 families and restoring two schools. This initiative is also aimed at encouraging other displaced Yazidi families who may still be in camps, renting housing or living with relatives to return to their communities, knowing that they will have access to normalization of infrastructure and education for children. At the same time, families will also have access to legal aid to file claims for compensation for lost or damaged property.
Ambassador Eric Chevalier stated that "France is proud to support this UN-Habitat project focused on basic services such as housing and education. The restoration of infrastructure is a prerequisite for the return of Yazidi refugees, especially in Sinjar and Baaj. We are and will remain on the side of the Iraqi people in the reconstruction of the areas liberated from the terrorist group ISIS.
UN-Habitat has been working in Sinjar since 2016 and in Baaj since 2020 with the financial support of the Governments of Japan, the United States and the European Union to build housing for those left homeless, to ensure the restoration and modernization of secondary infrastructure, public facilities, to provide vocational training and employment opportunities for unemployed youth and to provide legal assistance to those who have returned.
