IIMSAM’s Global Goodwill Ambassador “K2Rhym” Tunisian Mega Rap Artist makes an unprecedented four days visit and distributes imperative Aid to Refugees or Internally Displaced People (IDPs) in five camps: (1-Harsham Camp-2-Bahrka Camp-3-Kawrgosk Camp-4-Khazr Camp-5-Ashti Camp) with a total population of 52,000. The Camps are under the Kurdistan Government & the UNHCR-The United Nations Refugee Agency. Without a synergy of cooperation with the entities above the humanitarian distribution would not have been possible. IIMSAM is grateful for their assistance and logistical support they provided during the IIMSAM’s Goodwill Ambassador’s K2Rhym official visit.

These Internally Displaced People, (IDPs) the most vulnerable in society, have already withstood war, conflagration, hunger and starvation and so many unspeakable acts. Thus, without the continuous humanitarian intervention provided. They would also be prone to experiencing severe medical conditions, some life-threatening – like Leishmaniasis (a tropical and subtropical disease caused by Leishmania and transmitted by the bite of sandflies. It affects either the skin or the internal organs.) Without any help or hope and nowhere to turn for it. Food, Milk, Medical supplies are crucial to their survival.

Comments from the IIMSAM Global Goodwill Ambassador K2Rhym for IIMSAM’s Newsletter: “After visiting the camps I felt as though the world is living through an era of mass displacement. Never before have so many people been dispossessed or stripped of their human dignity and children of their childhood,” K2Rhym said. “There is an explosion of human suffering”: K2Rhym pleas to the world to do more in particularly for the children in these camps. “It was beautiful to see the children’s happy faces with a sense that someone cares for them when we were giving out the sport clothes and footballs.”

COMMENTS BY THE IIMSAM SECRETARY-GENERAL R. MARADONA:
“It is an honor for me to have appointed a truly “humanitarian extraordinaire”…His Excellency, Baker back in March of 2016. Since his appointment as our Goodwill Ambassador he has been the most prolific action oriented hands on with an impressive humanitarian in-kind contributions record valued at more than 30 million dollars. A deeply devoted humanitarian who cares about, in particular the over two million displaced refugees living in refugee camps in Iraqi Kurdistan his place of birth. A remarkable human being. Equally uber is our special adviser on humanitarian distribution Mr. B. Peshraw whose unwavering support and commitment he has for the refugees…In his role as the on site Chief Operations Director of Bring Hope. Mr. Peshraw and H.E. Baker shared responsibility in a synergy of cooperation between IIMSAM and Bring Hope Foundation represents the hallmark of our organization and what makes the IIMSAM unique in an ever-growing institutional sustainability arena.”

About BHHF’s:
Primary objective of humanitarian aid is to save lives, alleviate suffering, as well as to give the most vulnerable group (refugee children) hope for the future.BHHF has provided humanitarian aid since 1999 with short-term and long-term help to homeless refugees, victims of natural disasters, wars and famines, cancer patients, and poor people. The help has intensified since 2014 because of the refugees and IDPs in Iraqi Kurdistan. (Courtesy BHHF).

Background on Kurdistan, Iraq:
Kurdistan, with its population of approximately 5 million, has received over two million refugees in less than one year as a result of armed conflict in the region. The refugees are mostly internally displaced persons (IDPs) from Southern Iraq and include refugees from Syria. Among the refugees there are more than 0.6 million children, most of whom are malnourished and without proper shoes or warm clothes, while an extremely cold winter awaits them. In summary, all the refugees are urgently in need of warm clothing, shoes, sleeping bags, food, and medical care. (Courtesy: BHHF.)

Warehouse storage of the much needed medication headed for Kurdistan
IIMSAM’s Goodwill Ambassador in Sweden H.E Dr. Mariwan Baker and conduit Bring Hope Humanitarian Foundation (BHHF) ships a full load of much needed medication valued at more than in-kind 25 million US dollars to the refugees in Iraqi Kurdistan. As the medications leave the port in a refrigerated container in Amsterdam it will take another ten long days before the refugees will receive these supplies during the first week of November 2016. Among the medications shipped today is the drug Impavido, an imperative and impressive drug which cures 90% of the life-threatening disease Leishmaniasis. This flesh eating disease, also known as “Baghdad Boils” is relentless in its attack on an individual’s body and without the drug, not only will people suffer, but they may also lose limbs, or worse their lives. This latest shipment of medical drugs is the seventh shipment BHHF has provided to refugees in Kurdistan in the last year and a half.

Without BHHF’s synergy of cooperation with other international organizations such as HRIF (the Netherlands), IHP (UK), HPIC (Canada) and the Health Ministry in Kurdistan this shipment and those before it would never have been possible putting thousands of (refugees) people at risk. These people, the most vulnerable in society, have already withstood war, conflagration, hunger and starvation and so many unspeakable acts, so without the intervention and assistance these collaborating humanitarian agencies have provided they would also be prone to experiencing serious medical conditions, some life-threatening – like Leishmaniasis – without any help or hope and nowhere to turn for it. Medications were not the only items shipped today, hospital beds and mattresses were loaded and shipped along with them. BHHF and its collaborators’ provide continuous aid to these refugees, people who have been victims of unwanted war and its vagaries.
