Many people from Kirkuk were forced to leave their nice homes and belongings in search of safety for their family. Children were forced to leave their school and friends to end up living in the streets and some in refugee camps. Quite a change, especially for the children whose lives were turned upside down overnight. No home, no clothes… nothing.
In the background, Bring Hope Humanitarian Foundation works to bring these displaced people and their families a bit of comfort. 750 packages of clothes were donated today, 18 October 2017, along with 300 blankets and pillows and 30 cartons of kitchen items such as glasses and dishes. All items donated were worth approximately $157,000. Bring Hope’s mission isn’t simply to provide needed items, or give a bit of comfort, but to build hope and instill the ideology that people are worth everything and we as a world community are charged with creating a place where people come first, where hope is always there, where life is ever changing and circumstances, while they may look bleak now, can always change and become better than anyone can imagine. One must believe life will get better. So, people must know there are organizations such as Bring Hope to lead the way toward a better future. To help see bringhope.info.
