Iraqis volunteer to rebuild their war-torn country

In a campaign called 'Lifting the Debris', young Iraqi volunteers are coming together to rebuild Mosul.

    A group of young Iraqis say they will not wait for the government to rebuild the country.

    Billions of dollars have been promised for reconstruction, but as negotiations go back and forth, the volunteers are taking matters into their own hands.
