Nadia's Initiative, Yazda meet with White House and discuss Yazidi communities in Iraq

As Vice President Pence made restoring the rights and property of Iraq’s Yazidi and Christian communities, who were decimated by ISIS genocidal campaign, a top and unceasing priority of the U.S. administration; Nadia Murad and Yazda held several meetings with the White House officials as a part of our commitment to advocate for our community and help the administration reach out to those people.

The administration made clear to do its best to save the remains of these ancient and proud peoples, by directing the government to stop using ineffective and wasteful United Nations programs and to instead distribute assistance through USAID in order to provide faster and more direct aid to Christian and Yazidi communities in Iraq.

As Nadia`s Initiative and Yazda organization, we are grateful to this administration for this plan of directly reaching out to the minorities in need.
