SOLAR LIGHTS FOR YAZIDI REFUGEES IN IRAQ

Yazidis are a peaceful religious and ethnic minority who have lived in the Sinjar region of Iraq for centuries. Everything came crumbling down in 2014, when ISIS invaded the Yazidi homeland, executing innocent victims, committing genocide, and kidnapping thousands of women and children for sex slavery.

Many of those who escaped live in several rough refugee camps in northern Iraq. Most camps do not have electricity, leaving families in the dark once the sun goes down. One solar light provides light, safety, and the ability to cook after dark.

$15 buys one solar light.
