Christians living in Nineveh Governorate, in northern Iraq, were able to rebuild a nursery school and other facilities destroyed by the terrorist organization ISIS, which invaded the area years ago.
The money used for rebuilding was nothing but a donation from Pope Francis.
And the Catholic News Agency published the story of the donation, indicating that the Pope received a gift of a luxury white Lamborghini..
The donor was executives of the Italian sports car manufacturer in November 2017.
After the Pope blessed and signed the car, the Vatican auctioned it 6 months later in London for $ 950,000..
Part of the price of the luxury car was allocated to rebuilding Christian institutions in the Nineveh Plain in northern Iraq.
The Pope entrusted the amount of $ 240,000 to the Pontifical Aid Foundation, which used the money on two projects in Iraq, according to its director in Rome..
Alessandro Montidoro said that he is pleased that these reconstruction projects have been completed before Pope Francis’ trip to Iraq, tomorrow..
According to the Catholic Agency, the Pontifical Charitable Foundation rebuilt the Syriac Catholic nursery school, which accommodates 70 children, in addition to equipping a multipurpose room for a Catholic Church in Nineveh..
Bishop John Boutros Mushe, from Mosul, said he hoped the rebuilt infrastructure would help displaced families return to the area.
