Another self proclaimed Yazidis leader group questions our actions today. They claim to be the representatives like many others. To simplify the questions and answers, here is a summary.
The answers to all your questions or doubts about CYCI mission or Steve Maman.
Many questions arose from Detractors today and I decided to concentrate all answers in one post.
How much has CYCI raised : 875 000 cad
How much funds does CYCI hold : 150 000cad
How many people got paid or took a salary from CYCI as full time employment? None. Expenses covered. No salaries paid for Ceo or CFO or any secretary.
How many liberations did CYCI achieve : 140 between April 2015 and November 2015
How many refugees assisted off the Lesvos island Greece headed to Germany , financed through the Yazidis exodus mission? 2310
How many Yazidis assisted so far in Petra camp? Over 1000. Including other camps.
How many Yazidis and christians were assisted and continue to receive assistance from CYCI in Iraq / Kurdistan from April 2015 – may-2016?
Over 20000 people assisted in camps and cities ( seje. Sherifa. Dawediya. Dohuk. Khanke. And few other camps). with the following :
– 2500 winter jackets
– 1500 pairs of winter boots.
– 2500 quality gifts and soccer balls distribution on Christmas Eve to Yazidis christians in dawediya.
-1000 pairs of socks
– flour. Oil. For 7000 people.
– kerosene heaters for 3000-4000 people.
– kerosene tanks filled. 100 liters per family. Thousands of liters distributions.
– medical assistance and operations at CYCI expense.
-money envelopes to hundreds.
To those that wish to know where the funds were spent. Here you have the details.
All events were filmed and shown in the media.
Proof lies in front of your eyes with over 100 videos of our actions and certain liberations.
Any question about the identity of the liberated woman can only be shared with general Haidar Shesho. No other authority will receive an answer from CYCI.
No parents or freed women would accept we share their identity In public or with any self proclaimed group.
The general Haidar Shesho has testified in the UK Parliament house of Commons about the CYCI mission and liberations kn details. He is well aware of all our actions.
The reason we will not engage in liberations in Kurdistan is because of Khairi Bozani from the office of the KRG Govt, Yazidi office of Dohuk.
He has blocked our last efforts of 20 girls we were bringing back to Dohuk and stopped us at the border. He is responsible for their deaths if any was taken back by ISIS.
After reading both articles you will understand that CYCI has no more place to manoeuvre in order to free Yazidis from captivity.
The extortion and corruption are becoming all too dangerous. The loss of money we have caused to the corrupted people mentioned in those articles amount to very important amounts.
The residual of the funds 150 000$ are the property of CYCI to decide where and how to spend them. We will entertain the Yazidis in Petra camp.
We have 100 000$ in pledges that we haven’t decided whether to take or not. Again it will be our decision.
The 150000 $ available is for Christians and Yazidis.
We have been overly generous on spending the majority on Yazidis from the complete amount raised.
We are preparing in conjunction with General Haidar Shesho a sizable distribution to Sinjar soon. Everything is already purchased and we are arranging logistics with the general.
We will continue to help Petra and the Yazidis of Katsika camp with the funds.
Our next CYCI effort will be a political push for Yazidis refugees in Greece. We are working with 13 countries to which we will present a demand.
I invite you to read both articles below.
You will understand the issues as stake.
As well an important letter from Dr Mirza Dinnayi in a correction of an earlier erroneous statement. The statement clearly explains the activities of CYCI.
Statement of the Dr Mirza Dinnayi :
Statement about CYCI and Mr Steve Maman
Since several months, after we wrote letter to Mr. Steve Maman on August 25, 2015 , about his Organisation CYCI , i made follow up for all things his People did in the last few months, without to come back to the letter and demands that has been published in Vice News.
I found really that they did good job, helping some victims in Iraq. They were engaged In liberation of some Yazidi women and children from the IS captivity. Their team made distributions of humanitarian assistance to Yazidis in Kurdistan, and also ssist refugees in Lesvos to leave Island.
I had opportunity to know some of the nice People, who are working with CYCI in Iraq and Germany, like Dilan Bezek, Sufiyan Alhamo, Barjas and some others.
They are working hard and i recongize their act. Dilan Bezek and some their People, also Steve himself, went to Greece to help refugees.
I suggested to them to register the Organisation in Iraq or Kurdistan, to work without barrier and legally, and we will advice them to find the correct way for registration, without any costs or political problems. They should only follow the NGO law and transparency.
At the same time, we had to give Steve Maman a new chance, and accept his engagement.
I myself will be happy, to discuss with all other Yezidi activists and Leaders, who signed the letter, about this issue maybe to host Mr Maman in kurdistan and discuss everything with him, to solve all unclear points.
We have to Support all Friends, who want
to help, to make the way easier for those who come to help and rescue our people living a genocide.
Despite furnishing details, photos and videos from time to time the Steve’s dis-tractors due to greed and surrender to the Islamist fear under KRG are unlikely to accept reason. Similar projects by Hindu groups have also been subjected to similar social media hate campaigns. A project by Yezidis International in co-ordination with Sewa International were questioned , even though the funds collected from Hindu and Jewish donors were public and the needy students were determined by neutral Yezidi organizations.
Hinduphobia and Anti-Semitism seems to be the order of the day. Something that seems to be strong opposed and rooted out to save all ancient people including the Yezidis.
