FYF monitoring developments in Kurdistan / Iraq

Dear friends,

Over the last month, a great deail of turmoil has engulfed Iraq and the Kurdistan Region. The Free Yezidi Foundation operation, based in Duhok in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq, continues to function. However, we have been forced to evacuate our expatriate staff members, namely our British psychologists, and a flight ban in and out of Kurdistan has negatively affected our activities.

We are grateful to our local staff members who have been doing great work in supporting our women, girls, and children. Our projects are still being delivered, and our education, livelihoods, and trauma-reducing activities continue to be implemented.

Please find here the artwork of one talented FYF women's center participant. The peacock is a holy symbol for the Yezidi people.

The Free Yezidi Foundation is hopeful that Baghdad and Erbil are able to settle political and security disputes peacefully, ensure the end of all conflicts, and return the situation to normalcy. The humanitarian community, including the Free Yezidi Foundation, seeks stability and calm to ensure the success of its projects.

I would also like to thank all of you who are supporting our Foundation, through donations big and small. You are making a difference on the ground, each and every day. By the end of November, we will mark two full years since our centers began operating.

 

Sincerely,

 

Pari Ibrahim
