Essyan Camp near Dohuk, Iraqi Kurdistan has a total of 27,500 IDP’s (Internally Displaced Persons) and refugees, with a number of 114 orphans. Most have escaped from Mosul, which is ISIS’s second stronghold behind Raqqah, Syria. At this camp, some have lived here for more than a year and fear they will not leave anytime soon. Organizations such as Crisis Response International and CNS Foundation are working together to help these people especially the orphans who have lost their parents from ISIS.
