The young women were transferred mostly to the capital of ISIS, Raqqa, where they were sold as slaves.
Let’s call one of the young lady AA. AA, her husband, and 2 children were captured, later her husband was murdered. She was transferred to Raqqa with her children, there she was sold several times as slaves.
She and her children managed to escape ISIS. She returned back to Iraqi Kurdistan, settled down in a refugee camp (there are more than 50 refugee camps in Iraqi Kurdistan). She was devastated. The children got back some hope, and the older one started at school in the camp
She and the children were in need of some mental help… (DIGNITY)
Many refugee women are involved in Bring Hope’s Sewing project (Sewing Hope) in the camp.
The Sewing Hope is managed by the volunteer ladies (last time 4 from London, and 2 BBC correspondents) were back in Kurdistan.
This involvement brought not only some financial help, but also DIGNITY as a human being, a woman, and mother of three children.
