Child receiving fresh food aid from GHNI
Syrian Refugees in Northern IRAQ Feb.'21
Covid-19 has greatly limited access to refugees these past months. Regardless, our associates in Northern Iraq / Kurdistan, have done an excellent job of getting into camps and refugee areas outside camps, to distribute needful humanitarian aid.
Ari and Aram, with the financial backing of GHNI, have on numerous occasions, been able to assist refugees in the Bardarash Camp, Kurdistan, near Erbil. Refugees there spoke openly of how grateful they were for the fresh produce and fruit, provided by our staff and associates helping in that geographical area. I myself (Daniel Emig), have been there a number of times, and attest to the need of refugees for fresh food. While many of these camps have provisions of food, very few are able to have fresh food, such as those provided by us.
As funds are provided specifically for such, GHNI will continue these types of humanitarian aid provisions. Yet, our focus in GHNI is always for long-term sustainability. This is our goal! We call this TCD - Transformational Community Development. And it works extremely well!
Thanks for your crucial and active part in both the aid provided, as well as the steps we are all taking to move those in refugee camps such as Badarash, to sustainable lives, whether remaining in these camps or moving back to their post-war-torn homes.
Grateful for you in this and so much more ... GHNI
