Have you heard about the Yazidi people? This is a question I’ve been asking a lot over the last couple of months – to family, friends, work colleagues, waiters asking me what I’m working on as I sit huddled in cafés, stealing every spare moment I have in order to email MPs, campaigners, anyone to help in my quest to raise awareness and come up with a plan. So far the answer, pretty unanimously, has been “no”. At first, I would relish this opportunity to educate and inform people on who the Yazidis are and what they are currently facing but recently I have been getting more and more frustrated by vacant looks and confused head shakes – how do you not know? Why have you not heard?
