Journey Together with the Minority Groups of Iraq & Kurdistan
Our Journey Of Hope
Our mission is to provide unwavering support and love to the Yezidi, Syrian and Christians in Kurdistan and Iraq, offering hope to build futures shattered by conflict and displacement.
USA Springs of Hope Foundation Inc.
For close to nine years we have lived and worked within the minority Yezidi, Syrian and Christian communities of Kurdistan and Iraq. Our base is inside a remote Yezidi village which is home to a UN camp for 18,000 Yezidi refugees driven out of Shingal in 2014 by ISIS and to an additional 20,000 refugees living in tents dotted around the village.
As we have shared our Iraqi journey with our ever growing Family of Hope , we have received comments such as “ Oh how horrific” , “ How tragic “ or “ How do you cope?”
There are days when we have wept, days when we have screamed in face of the evil present in this current age. Days when we felt that our skin could not absorb any more. We could not not sidestep reality but we could bring hope into bleak futures.
As we persisted, our hearts have increased to love the stranger, to plead the cause for one whose voice has been silenced by hatred. We have learned that which textbooks can not teach, love and hope do win. Love is stronger than death. Hope is tangible, hope has its own fragrance, it is colourful and fun. Hope dances, hope sings, hope paints, hope sews, hope grows seeds. Hope and love are unstoppable. They redefine the future.
