Miss Kur­dis­tan vis­its Lal­ish to help the IDP

The Kurdish Globe - - FRONT PAGE - By Has­san Shin­gali

Shene Aziz Ako is a Kur­dish young lady who was nom­i­nated for Miss World pageant, and has won the ti­tle of Miss Kur­dis­tan on 28 of June, 2012. Ako is one of many Kur­dish young ladies that have sense of na­tion­al­ity and pride of be­ing Kurd as well as do­ing work of char­ity. The af­ter­math of the at­tacks of ISIS on many ci­ties of Iraq, in­clud­ing Mo­sul and Shin­gal and the dis­place­ment of many peo­ple to Kur­dis­tan re­gion led Ako to do her part of hu­man­i­tar­ian con­tri­bu­tion.

Shene Ako has vis­ited the IDP. She met many peo­ple in Lal­ish tem­ple to which many Yazidis fled to. The vic­tims of ISIS live, as we know, in dire sit­u­a­tions. Ako tried her best to al­le­vi­ate their suf­fer­ing. She had brought with her some ne­ces­si­ties too to the fam­i­lies with chil­dren.

Thus she planted the seeds of hope and be­long­ing among IDP and made chil­dren smile even if for some short mo­ments. Many of th­ese kids have ei­ther lost tem­po­rar­ily or for­ever their par­ents. One could see tears rolling down their ema­ci­ated cheeks.

At the end, Ako prayed for Yazidis in the tem­ple and hoped those who are miss­ing could safely re­turn to their loved ones.
