#FoodForHope - Khazal's story
Khazal has lived in an IDP camp located in Northern Iraq since 2017. Four years in a tent in freezing winters and scorching summers. With his heart-wrenching personal story we want to tell the story of many. Losing family members, fleeing from home, having to leave school and education, and living in constant uncertainty. Conditions are harsh, and basic things such as electricity, food and water are limited. Khazal has been one of the people that we have fundraised for during this Ramadan.
When we met Khazal he was optimistic still, and with aspirations to build a house for his family in the future we can only but admire him. With the month of Ramadan, and the upcoming Eid-al-Fitr, the optimism prevails and Khazal will celebrate with his family. This time of year during Ramadan is for the 1,6 billion muslims across the world including Khazal, a time of community and sharing food with family and friends.
With a month of fundraising, we have managed to reach over 200 of the most vulnerable families living in IDP camps in Northern Iraq with food packages for this special celebration.
We will share the results and photos from the distribution shortly.
