"Visit an Iraqi refugee family and they will show you the photos of murdered relatives and recount tales of threats, car bombings, kidnappings and ransoms, and scars on their children. They were attacked because of their religious beliefs or education level or job history or for collaborating with Americans. Their suffering continues."
- IRC board member Morton Abramowitz and IRC president George Rupp in an opinion piece published in the Huffington Post this week.  You  can read about the IRC's work helping uprooted Iraqi families here.
