Iraq – Sheep & Goats for Refugees
Poverty is a significant vulnerability that leads to human trafficking. As many as 7,000 women from the Yazidi minority community were kidnapped, enslaved, and brutally abused by ISIS fighters who used rape as a weapon during the Iraq War. Today, there are an estimated 350,000 Yazidis living in persistent trauma and poverty in internal displacement camps in northern Iraq, vulnerable and uncertain about their future.
This is why SEED is partnering with Set Free and Impact Middle East. We desire to come alongside the refugees whose communities were destroyed. Now living in refugee camps, the individuals and families are hoping to find a means of livelihood. Some in this community had been shepherds before the war – including a young woman who is now orphaned and head of her family.
SEED is raising $1000 to buy sheep and goats for the community members seeking a renewable livelihood. Any amount helps – Gifts range from $10-$100. Thank you for your partnership!
