This is just one family of thousands!
|Mohammad; his wife, Sara; and their two children were forced to flee their home in Mosul when the city was overrun by Islamic extremists. The family was already grieving the recent, sudden death of their 7-month-old child, and just days after their child’s death they witnessed an attack on their church that killed three and injured 12. Though they were not physically injured in the attack, Sara has frequent nightmares. The family fled to Kurdistan, where they now live in a makeshift home that houses 78 people. “Even though we escaped with our lives, I feel like we are in a prison here,” Mohammad said. “I don’t mean to be unthankful, but I am desperate for work to support my family in any way.”
