In a small, garage-like building in northern Iraq, Seve wakes up each morning not knowing how she’ll provide for her six children. Her husband is injured and unable to work. Their only income comes from the few vegetables her 12-year-old son can sell. Two years ago, they and thousands of other Yezidis fled Sinjar as they saw their neighbors kidnapped and killed by ISIS. A survivor of sexual violence, Seve is still deeply traumatized. Many days she doesn’t have enough food for the family.
