The Um al Noor Kindergarten is run by the Syrian Orthodox Church and is based in a large villa in Erbil. It caters for about 130 Christian children mainly from the IDP camps and from the congregation in Erbil. The eight teachers are led by Mrs Amira Aqrawi – Mrs Aqrawi is herself an IDP from the recently liberated eastern part of Mosul. But she says she is most reluctant to go back there. The children only pay if they can and with your support, we contribute £4,000 / $5,000 for each school year.
