We are currently undertaking numerous projects within Mosul in order to restore safe and dignified shelter for IDPs, returnees and stayees.



With temperatures ranging from below zero in winter to above 50 degrees Celsius in summer, adequate shelter is essential for survival in a challenging climate. We provide basic repairs to family homes in Mosul, using local teams to distribute and assist with the installation of shelter kits. To date, our teams have distributed and installed more than 1,800 kits, providing protection from the elements and privacy for those residing or returning to their homes. In some areas, nearly all windows have been blown out and destroyed by shrapnel, bullets, or the shockwaves caused by explosions. These simple steps provide income to the laborers we employ in Mosul, while providing families with safe and dignified shelter that will better prepare them to deal with extreme temperatures and other elements.

CNSF Shelter

Emergency Shelter


We help vulnerable individuals and groups who have been isolated and left without support as a result of the ongoing conflict.


With every project we undertake, we ensure the involvement of local men and women. These individuals are not only able to earn an income and stimulate the local economy, but can also take part in decision-making processes that affect their day-to-day lives. We believe that the participation of the local community is essential in building capacity, resilience and social cohesion.


Many of the community water sources were destroyed during the conflict. Communal facilities have been left in a state of disrepair, while personal water tanks and plumbing systems have been splintered with shrapnel or blocked by debris. In addition to the distribution of bottled water, our teams have undertaken repairs to water tanks and wastewater systems. With support from ECHO and in conjunction with NRC, CNSF is currently installing 100 communal water tanks throughout several communities in West Mosul. Through this project, targeted communities will receive more than 400,000 liters of potable water daily.
