An iface staff person in another city asked that I post this:
Women in distress
Over the past few months, an Iface worker who serves local refugees has been connected with 5 refugee women who are fleeing domestic abuse from their husbands. One of these women is a 27-year-old Iraqi who is 5 months pregnant. Another has three school-aged children. Another has one 10 year old child. And another has an infant in need of serious medical attention.
The needs of these women are overwhelming for one IFACE staff to handle. Thankfully; there is a loving community of friends from local churches who have stepped up to comfort, serve, and help meet the needs of these neighbors. These women have a long road ahead of them and they need many people to walk it with them.
