MANGESH, Iraq (BAHRA) -- The development division of the Assyrian Aid Society with the support of the German organization ELBC has recently initiated a new irrigation project in the village of Kon Kosa of the Mangesheh District. The project includes widening the irrigation streams for a length of 250 meters to increase river flow as well as building a dam for water storage. The widening of the stream will also require the building of a new bridge for stream crossing. The joint project with ELBC is the second of its kind similar to that of the Shiuz (Sejy) villages which was started a few months earlier. The Shiuz project is reported to be ongoing as scheduled and planned.
