Join us July 17 for a cocktail reception in support of OFWI with special guest Marie Henein, Senior Partner, Henein Hutchison LLP
While news from the region has slowed and territory once claimed by ISIS has been reclaimed, the destruction from the conflict left behind a great need for humanitarian relief efforts as Yazidis look to rebuild from this genocide.
Over 3,000 Yazidi women and girls remain unaccounted for. Many remain enslaved in Iraq and Syria, while others have been trafficked to other countries.
Following a reconnaissance trip to the region earlier this spring, Majed El Shafie will lead an OFWI Iraq-Syria Mission for Summer 2019.
The objectives of this OFWI Summer 2019 Iraq-Syria Mission are:
Deliver medical & food supplies to 5 Refugee Camps in Iraq & Syria
Continue rescue operations of enslaved Yazidi women and girls
