KURDSTAN: Fruits of your support of 90 Yazidi families through CPT
partners WADI and ALIND

unusual ground for CPT. We have amplified a
call for financial donations
from our partner organizations WADI and ALIND for support of 90 Ezidi
(Yazidi) families who had fled ISIS brutality and found refuge in
unfinished houses near Duhok.
and CPT have a history of partnering together on various projects.
The dire magnitude of suffering and destruction brought about by
ISIS, especially on the Ezidi people, and the urgency of the needs of
the families for continued survival compelled our team to also take
on this uncommon action. As a result of this
WADI and ALIND raised more than $3,500 USD which, in addition to
their own fundraising, was used to directly support the families.
the Iraqi Kurdistan team would like to thank all who so readily
responded to our call and also shared and amplified it farther. We
want to share information and photographs about the support that the
donations allowed WADI and ALIND to give. Please share the link to

ISIS who are now rejoining their families. They return deeply
traumatized and many of them are pregnant.
