An Iraqi town has been renamed Tel Askouf “Hungary’s daughter” after receiving funds from the Hungarian government for renovations.

The Iraqi town - inhabited by a Christian community and destroyed by the Islamic State terrorist organization in 2014 - was rebuilt using a donation of 2 million euros from the Hungarian government.

Tristan Azbej, deputy secretary of state at the Hungarian Prime Minister’s Office, told Magyar Idők that the Hungarian government had spent a total of 4.5 billion HUF (14 million EUR) on aid in the past 18 months to help persecuted Christians stay in their homelands.
