#DoNotForgetUs: Layla

03 August 2019

On 3 August, 2014, ISIS launched a genocide against the Yazidis living in Sinjar, northern Iraq, which led to the death and disappearance of thousands. Layla, 32, was kidnapped and forced to become a sex slave. She was sold nine times.

More than 3,000 women are still missing to this day. JRS is calling on the international community to stand with the Yazidi people as they share their stories. Help us share the voice of survivors like Layla.
