NGO’s deliver help to people whose lives are in desperate situations, politics are not a consideration for this help. Help is determined by PEOPLE’s NEED. When the Iraqi Security Forces and pro-Iranian Shia militia took direct control of the oil rich city of Kirkuk in October 2017 thousands of people fled to the more stable areas surrounding Erbil, Iraqi, Kurdistan.
Tensions escalate as Iraqi forces near the city of Kirkuk
The city and its surroundings have long been a diverse area comprising Kurds, Arabs and Turkmen. Kurds returned to Kirkuk in huge numbers after the overthrow of Saddam Hussein, and further entrenched their control in 2014 when repelling ISIS advances.
On 23 October 2017 Germany delivered an 11-ton truck to the main warehouses of Bring Hope Humanitarian Foundation located in Erbil. Worth approximately $150,000, teeming with clothes for men, women and children, including shoes and school bags this delivery is enough to distribute aid to 1500 families. This aid will be delivered specifically to those people who have fled Kirkuk. To help, see bringhope.info.
