Yezidi refugees in camp.

Society has a way of taking note of the plight of groups of people... and then forgetting about them when they are no longer in the news.

Remember the Yezidi people of the Middle East? They burst into the news when ISIS drove them from their homes in Kurdish parts of Iraq.

The Springs of Hope Foundation works to help them, at a refugee camp in Northern Iraq. A rep from the group visits to talk about what it has been able to accomplish, and what is still needed to get people out of the camp.
