Living under ISIS control and suffering from trauma, Sonia* turned to one of the women’s centers created by the Organization of Women’s Freedom in Iraq’s (OWFI). There, she received psychosocial support to aid her recovery as well as English and sewing classes to help her create a brighter future for herself. After completing her courses, OWFI connected Sonia with folks at a clothing factory where she was hired as a tailor! Thanks to your support, Sonia had the space to process her trauma, recover, and build new skills. She wanted us to share with you that her energy has been reignited and she’s hopeful for the future. Thank you for making this life-changing work possible!
