The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS - By Has­san Shin­gali

Pir Akid, the head of the Yazidi foun­da­tion and the Yazidi House in Ge­or­gia, has an­nounced in an ex­clu­sive in­ter­view on the Lalesh Me­dia net­work that Nechir­van Barzani, the head of the Kur­dis­tan Re­gional Gov­ern­ment, has do­nated $100,000 USD as a con­tri­bu­tion to the project to build the House in the Ge­or­gian Cap­i­tal, Tbil­isi. Akid ex­pressed his grat­i­tude to the head of KRG for his hu­man­i­tar­ian stance. “Adil Akrey, a for­mer mem­ber of the Kur­dis­tan par­lia­ment, vis­ited the House in Tbil­isi re­cently and in­formed us of the news”, added Akid. “We are ready to build our foun­da­tions”, point­ing out that do­na­tions and gifts have been re­ceived from dif­fer­ent sources and in­di­vid­u­als in­clud­ing the head of the Yazidis world­wide, Tah­seen Bak, and Taeeb Ber­wary, the for­mer Iraqi am­bas­sador to Ge­or­gia. Akid added that: “Yazidi the world over want to live in peace and co­ex­ist with other re­li­gions; they seek to es­tab­lish foun­da­tions and Houses of this sort in the dif­fer­ent places they live around the world. Chris­tians and Moslems es­tab­lish churches and mosques as a sign of peo­ple draw­ing closer to God, and the Yazidi also wish and hope to es­tab­lish such foun­da­tions to al­low them to come closer to their re­li­gion and to main­tain their tra­di­tions and show the world that they ex­ist and prac­tice a re­li­gion called ‘Yazidi’”.

Haasan Ali, a young Yazidi cit­i­zen, ex­pressed his grat­i­tude to all those who help and do­nate money for the es­tab­lish­ing of Yazidi foun­da­tions, and to the head of the KRG, Nechir­van Barzani. Da­ham Fano, another Yazidi cit­i­zen, said: ''I thank ev­ery­one who cares about the Yazidi and I thank Nechir­van Barzani for his kind­ness and his dona­tion. The Yazidi House was built in 2010 in Tbil­isi, the cap­i­tal of Ge­or­gia, and the ad­min­is­tra­tive board built large head­quar­ters for the House in 2013. Many projects are still on­go­ing in an ef­fort to serve the needs of the Yazidi com­mu­nity in Ge­or­gia.
