Inspired by the Christians of Kurdistan event held in London in October 2013, Gulan publicised an appeal by the AMAR International Charitable Foundation to raise funds for the work being done by Fr Nageeb Michaeel to help refugees and displaced persons in Ankawa, near Erbil.
Fr Nageeb has been working to house people of all dominations. The second video below is about his first project to convert a shell of a building to provide accommodation for families. He is now working on a second such project.
There are pictures in the slide show of this work in progress. The lower floors are occupied and the upper floors have still to be completed. The AMAR / Gulan Nageeb appeal has enabled donations amounting to US$3,000 to be made to Fr Nageeb.
