Project Report | Jun 8, 2021
SHARYA FIRE RAPID RESPONSE FUND

By Pari Ibrahim | Executive Director

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.

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,


Pari Ibrahim
Founder and Executive Director
