Emma organization in partnership with Postcards For Peace, which is a UK registered charity, celebrated Peace day on Friday, September 21, 2018.
Emma staff in Duhok celebrated Peace day in Sharya camp with Yezdi women survivors and host community. The women who involved in the celebration were captivated by ISIS fighters during they took control in their areas. Fortunately, some of them could flee. Now, they live with their families in a safer place. Emma staff over handed postcards, which peaceful messages were written on them. They hoped they could return their homes, and live peacefully once again. It has been more than four years they live in war. Some families were split, women raped and men were killed. They hope international community one day hear their voices bring them back peace.
The International Day of Peace ("Peace Day") is observed around the world each year on 21 September. Established in 1981 by unanimous United Nations resolution, Peace Day provides a globally shared date for all humanity to commit to Peace above all differences and to contribute to building a Culture of Peace.
