Kurds Flee Attacks in Syria

They are a people without a country. More than 25 million Kurds live in their ancestral lands of eastern Syria, Turkey, Iraq, and Iran and yet they are not free. In some cases they have been oppressed for decades.

In October, 2019 the fragile balance of power in northern Syria changed overnight and more than 2 million Kurdish men, women, and children are in danger. They are fleeing an invasion by the Turkish military into Syria.

The Kurds have few “safe havens” to move to. One of them is the semi-autonomous Kurdish Region of Iraq. This is where The Isaac Ishmael Initiative is partnering with N2N, a local non-profit in the city of Sulaymeniah.

We have launched an emergency assistance project to provide shelter, food, medical care, and other supplies to the displaced who come to Iraq.
