Some pics from refugee camp in Iraq — where I am this weekend with Reverend Franklin Graham and Samaritan’s Purse

Iraq (1)

More pics will be posted…but here are some to start with.  There are thousands and thousands who have fled Syria — and many of them are in a refugee camp in Iraq (Kurdistan.)  They are cold (it is winter and it is either raining or snowing.)  I saw many children without shoes and some kids with flip flops and no socks walking in the cold water and mud.

We were in one tent where a 90 year old women is sleeping and there is no heat other than the two hours a day someone lends her a heater.  Samaritan’s Purse is going to get her a heater and is buying 2000 more heaters to distribute.  In addition to being cold and without a heater, the 90 year old woman left Syria with only the clothes on her back and she is also deaf.

More pics and more info  to come………..
