UAE to Rebuild Catholic Churches in Mosul

The United Arab Emirates is partnering with UNESCO to rebuild two Catholic churches in Mosul (Al-Tahera Church and Al-Saa’a Church) that were destroyed in 2014 by the Islamic State. The agreement is part of the UAE’s ‘Year of Tolerance’ initiative, which began with a $50.4 million agreement signed in April 2018 to help rebuild historical landmarks in Mosul.
