On 3 August, 2014, ISIS launched a genocide against the Yazidis living in Sinjar, northern Iraq, which led to the death and disappearance of thousands. Layla, 32, was kidnapped and forced to become a sex slave. She was sold eight times.
Five years later hundreds of thousands of Yazidis are still displaced and living in harsh conditions. JRS is calling on the international community to stand with the Yazidi people as they share their stories. #DoNotForgetUs
