Film Preview Emergency Relief Shingal Mountain

The two relief organizations “Grünhelme” and “ARAMAIC RELIEF International” set off together on the way to the Shing Valley last week to provide emergency supplies to the newly invaded Jzidian refugee families. Here is a short excerpt of the work done.

“This year marks the 100th anniversary of the genocide of the young Turks in the Christian peoples of Mesopotamia, where around 20,000 Christians escaped to the Shingal Mountains between 1915 and 1918. Even victims of the genocide took resistance from the êzîdish tribes in Shingal The Christian refugees in the mountains and then defended them against their persecutors.
Today the Christians, Aramaeans, are back in the mountains of Shingal – not as refugees, but as helpers. “
