Musical Ambassador of Peace Project with Yazidi Sex Slaves in Iraq – More Help Needed
Musical Healing for Liberated Yazidi Women in Iraq!
Fund-Raising Now for Sending our Musical Ambassador
Back to Northern Iraq With More Drums!
The genocide of Yazidis by ISIL refers to the genocide of the Yazidi people of Iraq, leading to their expulsion, flight and effective exile from their ancestral lands in Northern Iraq. The genocide led to the abduction of Yazidi women and massacres that killed at least 5,000 Yazidi civilians during what has been called a “forced conversion campaign” being carried out in Northern Iraq by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL or ISIS), starting in 2014. ISIL’s actions against the Yazidi population resulted in approximately 500,000 refugees and several thousand killed and kidnapped.
Musical Healing for Iraqi Yazidi women
Musical Ambassadors of Peace sent 40 drums with our Musical Ambassador to Iraqi Kurdistan to provide healing energy for Yazidi women recently liberated from 2 years of enforced sexual slavery under ISIL.
A Yazidi woman who was kidnapped and sold as a slave after her family was massacred said: “Death has lost its terrors. Death is harmless compared to the hell we all had to go through.”
Arriving north of Mosul in Dohuk province of Iraq, our Musical Ambassador, Dilkhwaz Ahmed, got to work with these strong survivors!
“I had the privilege to work with amazing Yazidi women on the second anniversary of their genocide and help heal the wounds of war.” – Dilkhwaz Ahmad, Musical Ambassador of Peace
