BHHF, in collaboration with FRRME, distributed two loads of clothes to 2 500 Yazidi families on the
On Friday, 4th of March 2016, clothes and food delivered to the approximately 2 500 Yazidi families on the mountain of Sinjar. These families displaced from the city of Sinjar, after the ISIS attacked the town on August 2016. While thousands of families were captured or killed, these families were capable to escape to a safer region, namely the top of Sinjar mountain.
Sinjar mountain is famous for its hard nature, rocky and dry mountain, where water is barely existing. These families, therefore, are among the most vulnerable refugee groups in the entire Kurdish region, since they lack of proper clothing, enough food, clean water, electricity, school, hospital, or any others human service. After the start of the conflict on April 2014, approximately 2 million refugees fled to the Kurdish region in Northern of Iraq.
Despite that their hometown was liberated by the Kurdish forces some months ago, these families insisting to stay on the mountain, because there are no homes to go back to – today, the entire town of Sinjar is in ruin -, and also because of fear of explosives that has been placed/hidden, in principle, in every corner of remains of the houses.
BHHF, in collaboration with local institutions and NGOs, continuously struggles to provide the refugees with all kind of humanitarian aid. We should always keep in mind that these refugees has nothing left, and we have to give them a hope to believe in brighter future in their lives. Help us to embrace more of them, to maintain their human dignity.
