IRAQ: Bringing hope to refugees in Iraq
What We Are Doing In Iraq: Working with refugees who are displaced by ISIS in northern Iraq
Volunteers Needed For: Teaching english
Our first mission was to provide emergency relief to the refugees in Kurdistan, Northern Iraq that had been driven out of their homes by the Islamic jihadist group ISIS. Many of them were forced to try to find shelter in abandoned, unfinished houses with no windows, doors, or floor coverings. Plain Compassion sent teams to create shelters by closing openings with plastic sheeting and also helped with food, clothing and heating fuel distributions. Currently, we have teams working to meet the immediate needs of the refugees that have fled the violence caused by ISIS.
