As part of our Civic responsibilities to our Society and Human race large, we undertake yearly Charity Events, which aims at extending our best efforts to Women in Distress (Frauen in Not) either monetarily or through services.
We aim to raise a minimum of 10,000,- € for Charity causes, in order to achieve this objective, through our BCVIP Fashion Night, which takes place on the 23.07. 2016 in Immendingen, Germany,
Of such cases we shall be devoting these resources and attention to, is 18 year old Lamya Haji Bishar.
„Eighteen-year-old Lamya Haji Bishar was captured by Daesh (ISIS) on August 15, 2014, when they attacked her village of Kocho on the southeast side of Shengal Mountain. She was immediately separated from her mother and held in Tal Afar for 20 months, before her escape was organized. Her 12-year-old brother escaped after being held ten months, where he was sent to “school” in Tal Afar, to study the Koran.
Their mother, sister, and three brothers are still held captive by Daesh (ISIS), in Syria. Daesh (ISIS) has taken the eldest captive son, age 10, for jihadist training. The other three siblings, ages 9, 6, and 2, are with their mother. Lamya has not heard of her father’s fate.
On August 15, 2014, Daesh took hundreds of Yazidi men and teenage boys from Kocho and shot them in six mass executions at the outskirts of town. Nineteen survived their bullet wounds and managed to escape to safety in Kurdistan.
Lamya escaped from Tal Afar with two other Yazidi girls in April 2016. When they were close to the Peshmerga front and freedom in Kurdistan, her sister Catherine stepped on an IED bomb. She and another girl were killed. Lamya was badly injured in her face and eyes.
When Amy Beam and Jiyan Havind visited Lamya in Baadre, living with her aunt and uncle, she said she could not see the person sitting next to her. She is able to see only light. She does not see anything out of one eye which she dabs at with a tissue.
Her facial scars are healing, but she requires plastic surgery on her face. This week she traveled on a medical program to Germany where she will receive surgery. An eye specialist has given her some hope for restoring some of her sight.
It is unfortunate, however, that an earlier VOA story stated it is impossible for her to get plastic surgery in Kurdistan. Beam’s volunteer medical partner in Duhok is Dr. Sabah Al Sadoon. He is a maxofacial surgeon in Duhok and stated that it would be possible to perform plastic surgery in Kurdistan and that it should have been done immediately before the healing process formed permanent scars. It is unfortunate that there is often an automatic assumption that surgery is not available in Iraq.“
We implore members of the well meaning public to donate generously to this and many other cases of Women in distress (Frauen in Not) around the World over.

P. artistes (Geschwister Hofmann, Anke Ams, Christor Maybach etc.) as well as a range of exciting activities for your pleasure, while at the same time doing a course to better the existence of Women around the World.
