Iraqi TV Station Reported Severe Reality of School

We got an “urgent” mail from a staff member of Bagdad office last week.

He said that AL-Sharqia TV, an Iraqi TV station, broadcast severe reality of schools in Kirkuk.

What I saw in the video was that a school was surrounded by garbage as if it were a garbage site and that students were studying in a classroom without windows due to lack of budget for purchasing glasses.

Some children cried and said, “I want the school clean.”

JEN is trying to renovate school in five districts. However, we recognized that there are many more schools in need of support.
