HERA confirms Reunification of woman held by ISIS

HERA’s Reunification Program led to the confirmation of a Yazidi woman reunited with her family

In May of 2016, HERA’s support provided safe transport from the front lines of the ISIS conflict for a Yazidi woman. The woman had been held by ISIS and was sold as a wife to a senior fighter in the Mosul Region. 

HERA’s network of local smugglers alerted HERA that the woman was seeking escape. Working with local partners, HERA’s humanitarian operators planned the recovery operation and provided support and logistical support during the effort.
