Information Regarding the Sibling Family Project
Due to the wars at many parts of the world, and especially in the Middle East and Kurdistan, millions of people have been in the situation of migration, poverty and despair.
The purpose of the sibling family project is to stop the migration, to provide emergency humanitarian assistance, to meet basic health needs, and to offer psychological support. Moreover, it aims to develop a relationship between the families in need of assistance, to introduce them with each other, and to provide assistance in the framework of fraternity law.
This project enables us to support the poor, sick, war-stricken Kurdish families and orphaned children. Alongside the material help is intended to provide, the context of this project also aims to develop humanitarian relationships.
Since the foundation in 1993, Heyva Sor a Kurdistanê has run this project. The context of this project is to support families and to provide emergent needs of them.
Let you also be a supporter of this project!
Having started from the districts of Gimgim, the aggression of the Turkish state in the autumn of 2015 targeted the civilian populations of districts and provinces of Ferqîn, Lîce, Silopî, Sûr, Cîzre, Nisêbîn, Dêrik, Kerboran, Hezex, Gever and Şirnex, resulting in the massacre of hundreds of civilian population in the hands of the government security forces, hundreds of people also being injured, thousands of homes being demolished with the tanks and artillery fires. Also, the state forces tries to de-populate these cities by means of forcing them to migrate, of severing the most basic services, such as water, electricity, food supplies, and medical services through months-long curfews. As a result of these practices, hundreds of children had been orphaned and hundreds of families were rendered needy.
In the February 2017 Report of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR); Turkey is being accused of serious human rights violations. The Report focuses that following the collapse of the regional ceasefire in July 2015, Turkey is being accused of “serious demolitions, deaths and innumerable violations of human rights” made by security forces in cities inhabited mainly by Kurds in the south of the country.
It is stated that during the time in between July 2015 and December 2016, “government security operations” displaced 355.000 to 500.000 people from their own residences. In the operations carried out by the security forces, 2,000 people were killed, of 1,200 were security officers, and the rest of 800 were mostly civilians and militants.
The report states that the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) requested of the Turkish government for an independent UN team to conduct unhindered investigations into the region in May 2016, but the Turkish government repeatedly failed to receive any response until February 2017.
It is stated that the informations in the 25-page report was prepared based on the confirmed and analyzed data obtained by the remote monitoring team of the United Nations Human Rights Commission (OHCHR). These informations are based on interviews with the many rather than only one victim, witness and victim relatives, as well as documents submitted by the Turkish government and many Turkish and international civil society organizations, official records, public-open sources, satellite images, videos, photographs and sound recordings.
