On 13 August 2014, ACERO delivered humanitarian relief to 80 displaced families at the Sennacherib Sports Club, Dohuk. Aid packages distributed included a food hamper containing 15 items along with one foam mattress and pillow for each family. The 80 families were displaced from Baghdida, Bartalah, Telkaif, Batnaye, Teleskof, Sharafiah and Alqosh. It is noteworthy that the Governor of Dohuk, Farhad Atroshi, declared a State of Emergency last Tuesday following the influx of a large number of displaced people, mostly Assyrians, to Dohuk. Regrettably the authorities are unable to meet the service and shelter needs of the displaced. The work of organisations like ACERO is therefore paramount during this time of crisis.
