From September 2014 to January 2015 the northern Syrian city of Kobanê was besieged by the forces of the barbaric 'Islamic State'. Finally, against all odds, the Kurdish defenders won an epic victory.

But the human and material cost was enormous. Kobanê was wrecked and thousands died. Hundreds of children lost their parents and are war orphans and the city must care for them.

Today, despite a cruel and ruthless embargo by the Turkish government, the city is slowly rebuilding.

Australians for Kurdistan has committed to helping the Kurdish community in Australia meet a $400,000 target to build a school in Kobanê for the children of martyrs (i.e., whose parents perished in the struggle against the ‘Islamic State’ terrorist gangs during the siege of the city). The residential school will be run on enlightened, democratic principles.

We appeal to all supporters of the Kurdish people's struggle for freedom and democracy to consider donating to this important project. Contributions are collected and forwarded to the Kobanê Reconstruction Board which is overseeing the rebuilding of the city.

For more information on this project visit Australians for Kurdistan or check us out on Facebook.
