Not only does emergency food aid help keep people alive and nourished in times of crisis, it can also give them a sense of normalcy during times of trauma and change.
See how innovative projects through the World Food Program are empowering people like Saeeda—who was displaced from Mosul, Iraq two years ago—to cook her favorite recipes from home.
And try making Dolma yourself!
Saeeda Nouri, 45, is one of tens of thousands of Iraq’s Christians who fled religious violence in Mosul, Iraq in June 2014. She now lives with her husband and youngest son in Ashti Camp for displaced Iraqi families in Erbil, in the Kurdish region of Northern Iraq.
The World Food Program’s Marwa Awad visits Saeeda to hear her story and learn about one of Iraq’s most famous dishes.
