The Yezidis on Sinjar Mountain

The Yezidis who live on Sinjar mountain remain displaced from their homes and live in scattered and inadequate tents, suffering extreme weather conditions and searing, unbearable heat in summer.

They’re no longer able to farm their land and live in the villages they once peacefully inhabited, before ISIS destroyed their world. They have no way of earning a living or supporting their families.

Yezidi Emergency Support: The YES team have a unique mix of skills, with many Yezidi key workers and doctors living and working in Kurdistan, Iraq and Europe. There are also many international humanitarians who either consult on medical issues or help with fundraising.
