In 2018, the Director-General of UNESCO launched a flagship initiative “Revive the Spirit of Mosul”, focusing on the human dimension of reconstruction. With the full support of the Government of Iraq and of the UN Secretary-General, UNESCO is coordinating international efforts in two main areas: the restoration and rehabilitation of cultural heritage and the revival of educational and cultural institutions. Within the framework of this initiative, UNESCO has commenced the Project ‘Reviving the Spirit of Mosul by rebuilding one of the historic landmarks namely the Aghawat Mosque. Built in 1859, Al-Tahera Church is an iconic symbol woven into the history of #Mosul.
The process of restoration carried on by ARS PROGETTI is finally over and Pope Francis was able to pray for the victims of war in there.
