Where the initiative will work on finding solutions that allow returning citizens to Senjar after the recent crisis to be self-sufficient rather than relying on the aid network. As well as the resettlement of families living in IDP camps in the Kurdistan region of Iraq.
“The Qatar Development Fund is concerned with initiatives that have a role in development and are of paramount importance because of their long-term impact, as resettlement in Sinjar needs resources to start a new era of reconstruction, after the recent Crisis. The MoU in line with the direction of the State of Qatar under the wise government to help its brothers in Iraq, empowering the people is one of the matters of interest to the State of Qatar in particular ” said HE Khalifa Bin Jassim Al-Kuwari , Director General of Qatar Fund for Development.
“I am grateful to the Qatar Fund for Development for their support of Nadia’s Initiative and the Sinjar Action Fund (SAF). Nadia’s Initiative established the SAF to advance redevelopment efforts in the region. We are a global community and we must unite to rebuild what ISIS destroyed. SAF brings a comprehensive peace building approach to reconstruction efforts, recognizing that solutions must be developed locally and returnees must be an integral part of the process. The Qatar Fund for Development contribution to this effort is much appreciated and signals the importance of international commitments.“ said Ms. Nadia Murad the president of Nadia Initiative.
