In 2014 ISIS brought terror to Iraq. Millions of people have been displaced and have run for their very lives. There are massive camps that are overrun with people, causing sanitation issues, health concerns – both physical and emotional, and there’s no-one to care for the individual needs of each person.
There has to be a better way. How can we better care for refugees?
This is how The Refuge Initiative is responding:
These are not your ordinary refugee camps. We are building communities of hope.
Sponsor a refugee today and welcome someone home.
Rwandz Camp Expansion was built to house an additional 10 Yazidi families that were living in half-finished homes and were forced to move out. These families are located on the opposite side of the Rwandz Camp and the large soccer stadium complex.
An expansion to the Kawlokan Village was built to provide housing for 10 Yazidi familes that were in desperate need of accommodation. These 10 Yazidi homes are situated adjacent to the Shabak micro-camp, making the most of the available property, yet still providing a incredible sense of privacy.
