MOQIMI: helping children in need
Moqimi means God who raises me up from the depths. With the Moqimi Foundation, we want to help Yazidi children and their families who have been affected by war violence from IS to rebuild their lives. We have been working in Kurdistan in the Dohuk region since autumn 2018. The assistance focuses primarily on children and women who live outside the refugee camps. Since the spring of 2021 we have been running a children’s center where all kinds of activities are held. In addition, we provide food, medical care and material assistance when needed.
Moqimi is a small organization that works closely with the local population and local and international organizations. We are a small organization by design and keep our operational costs to a minimum. Moqimi is a non-profit organization and is completely dependent on private donations and funds.
Our vision & mission
Many children in the Yazidi community grow up in poverty and do not have equal opportunities in terms of education and future prospects. We want to break this negative spiral by offering a place of security where every child can be themselves.
Our mission is to broaden the horizons of the children who come to our center. We do this by offering extra language and math lessons, social programs and sports and games programs.
