On Saturday 9th August 2014, ACERO distributed humanitarian aid to Internally Displaced Persons who have fled to the villages of Kani Balavi, Warmel and Zawita from the Nineveh Plains.

Urgent aid was distributed to Christian and other minority communities as follows: 59 families in Kani Balavi, 30 families in Warmel and 25 families living in destitute conditions in public places.

Aid packages distributed included a food hamper containing 14 items along with one foam mattress for each family.

This aid distribution follows a previous major campaign in Dohuk where relief was provided to more than 100 Christian families who had fled from Bashiqa, Bahzani, Bartalah, Baghdeda, Telkaif and Teleskof, all towns and villages in the Nineveh Plains, as a result of the Islamic State gaining control of the area.
