I and my colleague Ala visited Halabja to meet with our partner organisation Amez and to visit some of the women who are taking part in Amez’ activities. We visited two villages outside Halabja, Ebabeylê village and Awaiy Rostem beg village. We really appreciated the meetings with the women villagers. The women in both villages have suffered from many years of oppression, war, chemical attacks, flight and life in exile. The whole community suffers from the traumas of war and conflict and the women, more than the men, have been deprived from education and work opportunities. The women in the villages expressed great interest to take part in more of Amez’ courses, both sewing courses and sport classes.
