Veterans1 Needs Your Opinions

Poll B: Refugee Crisis in the Kurdish Region of Iraq

According to reports, there are over 1.5 million Syrian and Iraqi refugees and IDPs in Iraqi Kurdistan, including Iraqi religious minorities such as Christians, Yezidis, and Iraqi Arabs. Please answer one or more of the following and share your comments, on how Veterans1 should address the crisis.

Provide medicines, medical supplies, and medical equipment to the public hospitals that provide free care to all refugees and internally displaced

Provide tents and mobile homes in assisting the development of refugee camps and transitional areas, especially for families stranded without any shelter

Provide nonperishable food and water supply, especially for children and women who may be struggling to obtain this, and given the UN agencies challenges to feed everyone

Provide home goods, such as clothes, blankets, bedding, kitchen items for those refugees and IDPs who have left everything behind for personal safety

If Veterans1 furnishes aid to Kurdistan, that should come only if services to veterans and their families are fully funded
