Yazidi football stars.

Yazidi children playing football at a field near their randomly set up camp where the family has stayed for more than 7 years, since ISIS was defeated, near Dohuk in northern Kurdistan Iraq. Many of these children have never known any other way of living. The Yazidi population has survived several genocide's in their history. The last one caused immense suffering when ISIS took control of the northern apart of Iraq and parts of Syria. An entire generation is growing up not knowing any other way of living. Football helps and unites them.
