Inspiration 

After the invasion of ISIS, I felt in great frustration and I was living in a miserable state full of sadness, despair, and depression especially after ISIS entered my city and took away my uncle and killed him. However, through my engagement with WRO and their Peacebuilding Training and learning about the work of civil society, I wanted to engage more. Thus I would like to extend my thanks and respect to WRO, through which I was launched towards humanitarian work, and through which I learned what my role is and what is the meaning of coexistence and return to my country were I could see that from fingertips the strings of hope could be spun again.
