What stood out to me on my trip to Iraq this weekend — is the kindness of the Kurds towards these Syrian refugees. The Kurds have themselves been refugees so they know how tough it is. The UN likewise is working hard to help these Syrian refugees. It is challenge to feed, clothes, try to keep warm and protect the thousands of refugees.
It is cold in Iraq right now…and when that sun goes down, it gets bitter cold. Imagine living in a tent in that frigid weather.
