Gulie Khalaf is a member of the Yezidi community in Nebraska who is working very hard to provide for and support the Yezidi refugees that were displaced from their homes in Iraq. She is one of the 900 Yezidis currently residing in Nebraska. The Yezidis In Nebraska are heartbroken because of the atrocities committed against their families back in Iraq. Hundreds of thousands of Yezidis fled to more secure regions of northern Iraq following the takeover of Sinjar by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) militant.
Globally the Yezidis number is barely one million after going through 74 genocides. At the moment, half a million are displaced and there are serious threats to their EXISTENCE: malnutrition, contagious skin diseases, trauma, ISIS and so on.
