SHARYA FIRE RAPID RESPONSE FUND

Dear friends,

We write to you today with heavy hearts. On Friday, a large fire broke out in Sharya IDP Camp in northern Iraq, one of 15 camps housing over 16,000 displaced Yezidis who escaped the 2014 genocide. In total, 370 tents were burned. 184 families, comprised of 994 individuals living in those tents, lost all of their properties and belongings. These families are currently without shelter, food, and other basic necessities.

Sharya Camp, Iraq, June 2021

We are humbly asking you to join our campaign to raise funds to support these families and to help us address this emergency situation. We are joined in this campaign by a group of Yezidi NGOs and activists working together to collectively fundraise for the families. All funds raised will be pooled and divided equally among the 184 families, with a steering committee overseeing the distribution of funds. Whether you can donate $5 or $500, every donation counts. Will you join us?

Events like these show us that Yezidis are unfortunately still experiencing the impact of the 2014 genocide. Thank you for your support and solidarity with the Yezidi community.Sincerely,

HAPPY YEZIDI NEW YEAR!

 

HAPPY YEZIDI NEW YEAR!

 

Dear friends,

 

 

 

Each year, Çarsema Serê Salê - or the Yezidi New Year - brings the promise of rebirth, hope, and life to the Yezidi people.

On the heels of such a trying year, we are particularly grateful for the opportunity to celebrate the joy that the Yezidi New Year represents with you. While our celebrations may be smaller and more socially distant than in years past, we welcome Çarsema Serê Salê and the opportunity to begin anew that it represents.

The Yezidi community still faces many challenges - more than six years of displacement, a burgeoning mental health crisis, particularly among younger community members, absence of justice, and the daily struggle to make ends meet. However, we are hopeful that the coming year will bring more opportunities for healing and rebuilding in the Yezidi community. 
 
We wish Yezidis and our supporters happiness, health, and safety in the year to come. Happy New Year, and thank you for your solidarity with Yezidis and the Free Yezidi Foundation.

 


Sincerely,


Pari Ibrahim
