At the moment there are 120 displaced Yazidi families (about 550 people) living in incomplete shell buildings around the Dohuk area. These structures lack windows, electricity, heating, and basic plumbing, providing little shelter from the cold, wind, or rain. WADI cares for these families by providing food, basic healthcare, and clothes. As well as providing building materials to seal the windows, doors and try to improve the living conditions. In a sense the have been ‘adopted’ by the staff that cares tirelessly for them. These efforts are coordinated by the Mobile teams, and supported by private donations especially in cooperation with Khalsa AID.
As this humanitarian disaster continues these efforts are a positive but sadly inadequate beginning. Without continued assistance, and funding for more Mobile teams, these efforts will fall short. Allowing the most vulnerable to slip through the cracks. Now is the time to show that you care.
