Kobani Refugee Fund
Organized by: rafigh palani
The brave, determined Kurds, are fighting for freedom against a terrorist army who has very much so declared war on the United States of America and the world. These brave fighters of Kurdistan have defeated The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) in Kobani, Kurdistan. The world owes these brave people great gratitude. Defeating ISIS in Kobani came at a cost. 1,120 of the 1,400 airstrikes led by the United States in Syria had focused strictly on Kobani because ISIS made it a priority to take the Kurds homeland which consist of 30% women. That is a astonishing 80% of airstrikes in Kobani. Freedom is the most important thing that all humans have the right to fight for. Victory came at a cost for the Kurds. As a result, the entire city is in ashes with no running water, no homes, and no electricity. Alot of these people were already struggling in this third world country before the war. These refugees are coming back to nothing and have to try to re-build from scratch with no resources. With so many conlficts and displaced refugees in the Middle East, I've made it my mission to do what I can to help my people because it wasn't too long ago that I was a refugees just like these kids when Saddam Hussein was gassing the Kurds in the late 80's and early 90's. I am very passionate about this cause and this is direct aid to these families so these families can try to re-build the homes that are in ashes. With some 200,000 people that have fled Kobani from ISIS, I am determined to help out as many families as I possibly can. The goal is to raise at-least $100,000. Each family will directly receive a $500 fund in an envelope and it will be proffesionally video documented just so you can see the genuine reaction of how much impact your generosity has people who have absolutely nothing and the hands are tied due to lack of resources. Helping 200 families get food and clothing for the children who have nothing and are returning from a refugee camp is an example of great humanity that is coming from the American people and it will be greatly appreciated.
