Supporting Yazidis in Kurdistan
May 26, 2017
We are Molly and Kyle, a young couple using our voices, our freedoms, our rights to serve those less fortunate around the globe. It is our life purpose to serve our brothers and sisters, as we see us as all being part of one global family.
We have spent the past 20 months volunteering in Lesvos, helping near the border during the closure process, supporting a women's center in Turkey, fundraising, giving presentations on the crisis, feeding homeless refugees, filling the gaps to meet the shifting needs on the ground, supporting Serres Camp in Greece, establishing the Gather for Goats Campaign with Lifting Hands International, and supporting Yazidi survivors in Kurdistan.
We continue volunteering as directors for Lifting Hands International in a Yazidi Camp in Northern Greece. We offer trauma sensitive yoga, dietary supplementation, educational opportunities, recreational activities, a multi-lingual library, and hygiene distribution.
We recently visited Kurdistan in order to see how we could best support the Yazidis in the region. We will be returning in September to purchase basic medications for the WAHA Medical Clinic in Shingal, to support recently escaped survivors of captivity and sexual slavery, and to build a greenhouse in Shingal.
We must raise 3,500 USD to fund our first greenhouse in the region. The greenhouse will provide many families with the opportunity to grow their own fruits, vegetables, and herbs. The infastructure in Shingal was destroyed during the 2014 genocide, please help us help them rebuild their lives.
We will continue to post pictures, stories, and articles to keep you updated on how your donations are making a difference in the lives of those who need it most!
