Topics and Guests for todays show
The Kurdistan Refugees – A Humanitarian Tragedy
By: Hallie Neill
After spending his own childhood in refugee camps, Awat Mustafa now works with the Barzani Charity Foundation to provide aid to 2M refugees who — fleeing the safety of their homes under threats of death, beheadings and torture by ISIS — are now hiding in the camps, mountains and streets of Kurdistan.
Kurdistan is unique in the Middle East, embracing refugees of all faiths, including Muslims, Christians and Yezidis; they encourage the church in the region rather than destroy it. Mustafa speaks as a voice for the Muslims of Kurdistan that do not embrace the extremist element of their faith.
“We are fighting the war against civilization on our soil, so you do not have to fight it in the US. We are grateful for the help we have received but so much more is needed,” reports Mustafa. The Peshmerga fighters of Kurdistan include men and women as well, but all are lacking sophisticated weaponry necessary to defeat ISIS. Mustafa appeals to the Obama administration for the military equipment urgently needed to replace their long-outdated 1970’s rifles.
Mustafa is currently seeking sponsorship for the new surge of 750 Yezidi orphans whose parents lost their lives in the war. The needs are overwhelming as the current 10,000 orphans cannot all be cared for. Donations of $100 would sponsor an orphan for one month. Financial donations for the Kurdish refugees’ urgent needs of baby milk, baby diapers, shoes for children, and adults (men and women), clothing, coats, blankets and women’s needs will gladly be received by www.citihope.org. Click “donate now” and direct donation for “BCF” or “Kurdistan.”
