MISSION CAPSULES: The dire humanitarian and human rights situation in Iraq has left many families without access to shelter or food. Many of the more than one million who have fled their homes, left with nothing but the clothes they wore and whatever they could carry with them. PWS&D has been supporting the provision of immediate assistance to families fleeing violence and persecution. Families have received relief packages of food, water, hygiene kits, pots and kettles. Sedardar Rashid fled his home with his wife and three children and is now sheltering in a school. "It is safe here," he says. "We no longer have to fear for our lives. We get food and water." To learn more about how to support PWS&D's response to violent conflict, visit WeRespond.ca/be-a-peacemaker.
