“As we prepare for our Mother’s Day Campaign, where we will pass out hygiene

packages including baby's milk and diapers to those in refugee camps and shelters, we want to

shed light on the story of one particular family. It is a story that displaces religion, belief system,

and political opinion—a story that we hold as our very own. Meet Baba….”

"Baba clearly recalls the words his relatives cried out the day that ISIL, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, crossed over the border of Syria to the west and summited the Sinjar Mountains—the only barrier left between the encroaching enemy and the Yazidis, his people. On the night of August 2, 2014, the city of Sinjar was left unprotected without warning when both the Iraqi federal military forces and the Kurdish Peshmerga forces withdrew from the area amidst ISIL’s onslaught. ISIL had become an unstoppable tempest, and not even the Iraqi’s passionate defense of their families and homes could stop that force."
