STORYLINE:

In the north of Iraq, a woman doctor is dedicating her life to women who escaped ISIL captivity.

Dr. Nagham Nawsat Hasan is dedicating her life to helping these women survivors rebuild their lives again by providing them with free consultations and psychosocial support.

SOUNDBITE (Arabic) Nagham Nawzat Hasan, Yazidi Doctor:
“I have sacrificed my life to the service of Yazidi women, survivors of ISIL.”

Two years ago, Dr. Nagham started an organization called “Hope Makers for Women which is helping women survivors of ISIL terror.

SOUNDBITE (Arabic) Nagham Nawzat Hasan, Yazidi Doctor:
“We visit women survivors of ISIL in camps to give them medical and psychological support.

In the summer of 2014, thousands of Yazidi women and girls living in the north of Iraq, were abducted and enslaved by ISIL. They were subjected to abuse, torture and continuous rape. Those who later escaped or were eventually freed, suffered from psychological trauma and physical pain.

SOUNDBITE (Kurdish) Yazidi survivor:
“She told us that we are not only friends but also sisters. That made us very happy. She was giving us medicine and support. “

A displaced Yazidi herself, the gynaecologist has supported more than 1,000 Yazidi women including Nobel Peace Laureate Nadia Murat.

SOUNDBITE (Arabic) Nagham Nawzat Hasan, Yazidi Doctor:
“Playing the role of a doctor was not enough. I had to make them feel safe, I had to gain their trust.”

Even today, the fate of more than 1,400 women enslaved by ISIL across Iraq remains unknown.
