Ottawa, Canada (December 17, 2015) - 1st New Allied Expeditionary Force Launches Crowdfunding Campaign to Provide Medical Development Programs to Aid the People of Kurdistan
The Canadian non-profit and Kurdistan-registered Non-Governmental Organization (1stNAEF), assisted by US-based, veteran-owned business consulting firm Noetic International (NI), announces the launch of a multi-phase crowdfunding campaign to support programs that will bring much-needed medical development and humanitarian aid to those living within the administrative area of the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG), especially in light of their current struggle against Daesh (Islamic State) militants.
In October 2015 the plight of an eight-year-old ethnic Yezidi girl named Hanin Salo was brought to the attention of The 1st NAEF. Hanin is suffering from a worsening medical condition while she and her family are living in a Refugee Camp after being forced to flee their home in Shangal. Local medical services have been unable to fully diagnose, let alone treat, her condition(s).
We at the 1stNAEF are currently working to gather what limited resources we can to assist this innocent girl and her family. We have appealed to the Canadian Government for assistance to Help Save Hanin Salo.
Please help us.
