FURNITURE FOR NPU SOLDIER RETURNING TO HIS VILLAGE
Meet Rami, an NPU soldier. In 2006, while living in Baghdad, Rami was kidnapped, and forced his family to sell everything they owned in order to pay ransom. After being held for months, he was finally let go when the money was paid. The family fled to Karemlash, and settled on a new more quiet life, where Rami married and began to have a family of his own. In 2014, Islamic State forced them out, and once again they had nothing, settling as displaced in Hawdian village, Erbil for 4 years. During that time, Rami listed himself as a soldier for the NPU, fighting to take Nineveh Plains back. Now ready to bring his family back to Karemlash, he needed financial help. Shlama provided brand new bedroom set, stove, washer, TV, heater.
CAFETERIA ROOM FOR NPU SOLDIERS
We helped out the brave Nineveh Plain Protection Units - NPU. For years now the men eat their food in a tent. We assisted the men by purchasing more than 500 blocks to build a room to eat in. These men serve for a very low salary. It's important that we stand with them.
