JHK calls on Kurdish, Iraqi and Syrian authorities, The United Nations and the International community to:
1. Ensure proper care and support for survivors of ISIS captivity. Freed women must not be separated from their children. If it is impossible for them to remain with their children in the region they must be given the opportunity to travel to a third country. Human rights must be given absolute priority over political and religious considerations. The needs of survivors and their children must come first.
2. Provide humane conditions for IDPs in camps: proper housing, infrastructure and education, that allows Yezidis to live with dignity and prepare for the future.
3. Work together to ensure lasting peace and security in the Sinjar region so the Yezidi people can return home and rebuild their lives and their community.
