IRAQ – SIRIA
Oltre 15mila curdi siriani fuggono in Iraq. Arcivescovo di Erbil: “Aiutateci”
L’esodo è il più grande nella storia recente della popolazione curda. Il rischio è la scomparsa dell’etnia nelle regioni siriane. Mons. Warda, arcivescovo di Erbil, racconta il lavoro della Chiesa locale fra i rifugiati. Essi sono soprattutto donne, anziani e bambini.

Erbil (AsiaNews) –  Oltre 15mila profughi di etnia curda hanno attraversato nei giorni scorsi la frontiera con l’Iraq per cercare rifugio nel Kurdistan iracheno. L’esodo è il più grande nella storia recente del popolo curdo. Mons. Bashar Warda, arcivescovo di Erbil, una della città che sta ospitando il maggior numero di rifugiati, racconta ad AsiaNews: “Queste persone hanno lasciato le loro abitazioni e i loro averi in Siria. Hanno bisogno di tutto: cibo, acqua, medicinali e un riparo sotto cui dormire”. Il prelato spiega che la maggior parte sono donne, anziani e bambini. Gli uomini e i figli più grandi sono rimasti in Siria a combattere contro le milizie islamiste che in questi mesi hanno tentato di conquistare la regione.

“Da quando è iniziato l’esodo – continua mons. Warda – la diocesi di Erbil ha dato il via a una campagna di aiuti, raccogliendo beni di prima necessità e creando luoghi in cui accogliere i rifugiati”. Per gestire la situazione, la diocesi ha creato un apposito comitato, il Mercy Charitable Committee, con sede ad Ankawa (Erbil) che si occuperà di inviare ogni giorno viveri e beni ai campi allestiti dal governo. Dall’inizio del conflitto siriano l’Iraq, e in particolare la regione del Kurdistan, ha ospitato oltre 300mila profughi.

Mons. Warda lancia un appello per sostenere la popolazione rifugiata: “Abbiamo bisogno di aiuti. Apprezziamo tutti coloro che desiderano aiutarci a sfamare e curare queste famiglie bisognose”. Il prelato sottolinea che la Chiesa caldea, attraverso il suo comitato, compie regolari visite ai campi, per verificare l’effettiva distribuzione dei viveri. “Saremmo grati a tutti coloro che vogliono sostenerci”.

La migrazione di massa preoccupa il governo regionale del Kudistan, incapace per il momento di assorbire il numero di persone che arrivano nella zona.  Secondo una fonte interna al Partito democratico curdo (Pyd), in questi mesi il governo regionale ha tentato di controllare il valico, dando il benestare solo agli scambi commerciali. Tuttavia, nessuno si aspettava un esodo della popolazione di tali dimensioni. Per le autorità curde se tale esito continuerà il Kurdistan siriano resterà deserto. (S.C.)

IRAQ – SYRIA
More than 15 thousand Syrian Kurds flee to Iraq. Archbishop of Erbil: “Help us”
The exodus is the largest in the recent history of the Kurdish population. The risk is the disappearance of ethnicity in the regions of Syria. Archishop Warda of Erbil, speaks of the work of the local church among the refugees. They are mostly women, elderly and children.

Erbil (AsiaNews) – More than 15 thousand refugees of Kurdish ethnicity have crossed the border with Iraq to seek refuge in Iraqi Kurdistan in recent days. The exodus is the largest in the recent history of the Kurdish people. Archbishop Bashar Warda of Erbil, a city that is hosting the largest number of refugees, tells AsiaNews: “These people have left their homes and their belongings in Syria. They need everything: food, water, medicines and a shelter to sleep under. ” The prelate says that the majority are women, elderly and children. Men and older children have remained in Syria to fight against the Islamist militias who in recent months have tried to conquer the region.

“Since the beginning of the exodus – continues Msgr. Warda – the diocese of Erbil kicked off a campaign of support, collecting basic necessities and creating places to welcome refugees”. To handle the situation, the diocese has created a special committee, the Mercy Charitable Committee, with headquarters in Ankawa (Erbil) that sends food and goods daily to the camps set up by the government. Since the beginning of the Syrian conflict Iraq, and particularly the region of Kurdistan, has hosted more than 300 thousand refugees.

Archbishop Warda launches an appeal for support for the refugee population: “We need your help. We would greatly appreciate any help from people who want to help to feed and care for these families in need.” The prelate stresses that the Chaldean Church, through its committee, makes regular visits to the camps, to verify the distribution of food. “We would be grateful to all those who want to support us.”

This mass migration deeply concerns the regional government of Kudistan, unable for the moment to absorb the number of people arriving in the area. According to a source inside the Kurdish Democratic Party (Pyd) in recent months, the regional government has attempted to control the pass, giving the green light only to trade. However, no one expected an exodus of the population of this size. For Kurdish authorities if it continues at this level, then Syrian Kurdistan will be deserted. (S.C.)
