Mission East


Hope for the displaced on Sinjar Mountain

The children on the Sinjar Mountain are burdened with disturbing memories of murder and abuse. Mission East’s children centre allows them to process their trauma through playing and drawing. They also learn to do maths and write.

Thousands of Yazidis in North Iraq have now returned to Sinjar Mountain from where they fled when the Islamic State attacked the area more than one year ago. Mission East is helping them with sanitation, shelter and processing the trauma.

Women and children freed from IS terror - now they need help to survive.

Women and children freed from IS terror

A group of women and children were freed from Islamic State while Kim Hartzner was visiting Kirkuk in northern Iraq. As with all refugees, they are in desperate need of everything in order to make it through the coming winter. Mission East is distributing food and hygiene kits.
