Hasan Sinemillioglu
Starting Point

The destroyed Kurdish villages should be reconstructed, also in the subdistrict Amadiya. However, the farmers who should and want to return to their villages do not have the means to reconstruct the villages by themselves. The families are poor and do not have the ability to create a new life for themselves. There is a lack of housing, farming equipment, irrigation plants and institutions for education and health care.

In the villages Sarke, Xasto, Xasto Aliya, Latka, Mille Meydane, Kola and Dihike the families who are willing to return were to be supported by construction of housing, irrigation plants and animals, so that they can start the reconstruction of their villages. Furthermore, a primary school was to be built for Sarke, Xasta and Xasto Aliya.
