Today’s show our guest is Kawa Kurdi director of the charity called the Rizgari Foundation. Kawa speaks about why he started the charity. He also educates me on the history of the Kurdish people, the oppression that they have faced and continue to face as a minority group within the Middle East.
Following the Turkish invasion of Rojava a primarily Kurdish populated region in northeast Syria, thousands of Kurdish families have been displaced and placed into refugee camps. Unfortunately, these camps are severely underfunded and are unable to provide the people with sufficient food, water, shelter and education in order to end the poverty cycle.
Kawa has decided to start this chartiy to both raise awareness to these issues and to help provide support to the families living within these refugee camps.
Throughout the conversation I was educated as to the struggles and suffering that the Kurdish people have been subjected to and still are to this day.
