Taking Names – Visas for Iraqi Refugees

The truly incredible story of a guy named Kirk Johnson who started a list of hundreds of Iraqis who needed to get out of their country. They were getting death threats, and he was their only hope. Only 26 and living in his aunt’s basement, he had no idea what to do. How Kirk kind of succeeded spectacularly and failed spectacularly at the same time.

The Baath regime executed this woman’s husband.

After the occupation, one of her sons discovered an explosive device on a street in Baghdad and reported it to the authorities. The militia threatened vengeance on the son’s family. They then fled to Jordan.

This widow is joined in Amman by her unmarried sister and her two children. The family does not receive cash assistance from UNHCR.

Their economic situation is difficult.
