FROM WILEY MORGAN TO DINAR RECAPS
UPDATE ON COATS 4 KURDISTAN
I just wanted to take a moment to personally thank all of you for the overwhelming response to our Coats 4 Kurdistan project. We have 50 boxes of coats and blankets with deliveries coming in daily.
We are working directly with the Barzani Charity Foundation, in Erbil, Iraq and reaching out to each of you to help with your own donations of gently used coats, blankets or winter clothing for the 2 million refugees (Muslims, Jews and 400,000 Christians) hiding in the mountains of Kurdistan from the threats of ISIS.
We began to share the story here with our friends in the dinar community and now have a website to help you each share with your friends, churches, communities and social media.
Please help spread the word - www.Coats4Kurdistan.com

FROM WILEY MORGAN AND KCMANA TO THE DINAR COMMUNITY
COATS FOR KURDISTAN PROJECT
“This is not a crisis; it is a tragedy.” – Barzani Foundation
We are calling on all of our friends throughout the dinar community to come together to help
us meet the urgent needs of the orphaned refugees in Kurdistan.
➢ URGENT SITUATION: 2 million refugees (Muslims, Christians and Jews) fled the safety
of their homes under threats of beheadings and rapes by ISIS and have escaped to
Kurdistan. Hiding in the mountains, living on streets or refugee camps, 25,000 orphans
are in urgent need of coats and blankets to survive the winter and harsh environment.
➢ WHAT YOU CAN DO: We are asking the dinar community to collect reusable coats and
jackets (especially for children ages 3-17). Gently used blankets are also needed. Please
take a moment to include a hand-written note inside the pocket of the jacket from a
caring American to an orphaned refugee. Let’s come together to let them know
someone cares and they are not alone.
Please share this need with your friends, family, churches and communities.
Simply package and address box to:
Coats for Kurdistan

We will take care of the shipping costs directly to Kurdistan
and ask that all coats/blankets be sent to us by December 31, 2014.
We are working directly with our friends at the Barzani Charity Foundation who will distribute
the coats and blankets sent by the dinar community directly into the hands of the waiting
