Collecting donations to cover shipping costs to help with the restocking of the destroyed university library in Mosul, Iraq
One book at a time...
The library at the University of Mosul, among the finest in the Middle
East, once had a million books, historic maps, and old manuscripts. During the occupation of Mosul, which began in June 2014, Islamic
burned the city’s central university library. Once a treasure trove of
Unesco-registered rare books, the central
library of the University of Mosul is now full of ash. The university is preparing to rebuild. Will you help?
We want to be a part of creating a credible resource center at one of the Middle East’s most important universities.
Please consider making a financial donation here to help with shipping costs and and purchase of new textbooks. Please contact email@example.com with any questions.
