A Syrian refugee child and beneficiary of our work
As we upgrade shelters for Syrian refugee families in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq, Peace Winds is paying special attention to the adults and children with disabilities, older persons, pregnant women, and other individuals facing barriers to mobility. Without proper shelters and camp infrastructure, refugees with disabilities and their families have a harder time getting around the camps, accessing services, and focusing on their personal goals. Peace Winds is working to construct better housing, provide food and schooling, and train refugees in various livelihoods so they can enter the workforce and earn a better income to support their families, helping them focus on what matters most.
