An Ongoing Struggle

On the evening of 12 November 2017, the ground shook with a fierceness that measured 7.3 on the Richter scale near Halabja in the Kurdistan region near the Iran/Iraq border. This tremor was felt throughout the Middle East and many were left homeless.

Darbandikhan City in the Kurdistan region is a town about 28 kilometers from Halabja in the Sulaimani Province. This was the hardest hit area in the Kurdistan region and Bring Hope Humanitarian Foundation has visited here in the past to help the victims. Again today, 28 December 2017, the team from Bring Hope arrives in Darbandikhan with 200 packages of clothing, 75 school bags, tables, chairs and other furniture including files, plastic boots, crutches and 20 wheelchairs.

This earthquake left families homeless and living on the streets, children are most vulnerable to disease in these living conditions and Bring Hope will continue to provide support for these victims as long as needed. While the news media has long moved on from this story, the tragedy continues to unfold. To be part of the solution, see bringhope.info.
