Refugee camp outreach in northern Iraq with AVC
Since the Arab Spring of 2011 and the wars that followed, the displacements as well as the IS atrocities, 500,000 people have died in Syria alone. Over 11 million Syrians have been forced to flee, of which about 5 million made it to Iraq, Lebanon, and Turkey. Hardship, poverty, hopelessness, and sometimes severely traumatized children, as well as adults now, live in refugee camps.
We, as ICF, have been touched by the needs of the people who have had to escape their homes. The refugee camps in northern Iraq have become a home for thousands of Kurds. We want to take a closer look and actively support the Camp J. refugee camp. With AVC (Action on behalf of persecuted Christians and the needy), we have selected a strong and strategic partner that is networked on-site. Under the leadership of AVC, we will send out a team that will offer help to Camp J. in northern Iraq. Our refugee camp is to receive sustainable help by having staff that live on-site and that build relations with the Kurds. As an ICF, we plan to have regular outreaches, training and offer humanitarian aid on-site. With our words and deeds, we want to bring a hope that is independent of the circumstances to the people of Camp J.
