Iraq’s Yazidi projects face funding threat

Some Yazidis fear the world is no longer paying much attention to their suffering as ISIL's threat appears to diminish.

    In northern Iraq, several projects are trying to help Yazidi women support themselves and their loved ones after ISIL drove them from their towns and villages into refugee camps.

    But as the threat from ISIL has appeared to diminish, so, too, has the funding for the projects.

    Although the fight against ISIL may be mostly over, many Yazidis are still struggling to rebuild their lives.
