Shayma and Sana
Shayma, age 30, and Sana, age 34, are sisters from Sinjar who are now living in Khatare village in one room of a very bad house. Both are married and have children.
In August, during the ISIS occupation of Sinjar they were separated from their families and they lost their way. ISIS arrested them and took them to Mosul. They have been sold more than one time by ISIS members in Mosul and in Syria. After eight months, they escaped and through Kurdish Authorities in Syria they came back to Kurdistan to get their families.
They are now living with many IDP families from Sinjar in Khatare village. During Sewan protection teams visit to the village, they spoke to Shayma and Sana’s family as they are living in the same house. Because they have many needs, Sewan decided to provide more support to their families and to have more non-food items provided to their children.
On November 9th Sewan team distributed 78 shares of non-food material to the families in Khatare village, Shayma and Sana families were included, they were all provided with sets of clothes, shoes, blankets, household materials, toys, tooth brushes and paste, shampoo and soap for children. These materials were provided by Bring Hope Humanitarian Foundation to Sewan Women’s Empowerment Organization.
Sana “I am so happy to see my children have clothes and toys to play with”
Shayma “Many thanks for Sewan and Bring Hope because they are helping poor families within IDPs”
