About Project Abraham

In 2015, The Mozuud Freedom Foundation initiated Project Abraham to help bring Yezidis to Canada. Project Abraham began when Mirza Ismail, Founder of Yezidi Human Rights International, approached Geoffrey Clarfield who was the Executive Director of Mozuud. Mirza was desperately looking for help sponsoring Yezidis under the government Family Reunification Program (FRP). Project Abraham has since become an independent NGO, with over 350 volunteers helping the growing Yezidi community in the GTA.

The Yezidi community is desperately trying to bring over more relatives from Turkey, who cannot return to their homes in Iraq. These people are living in fear, without food, money, and medical help.   They need the help of Project Abraham volunteers to find the necessary funds, complete the applications on their behalf (most Yezidis have little or no English skills) and communicate with the government and other refugee organizations.


As Project Abraham has grown, so has our need to solicit funds to support the work we are doing.  We have achieved so much, but there is so much more that needs to be done to help our GTA Yezidi community recover from the trauma of their ordeal.

Without the help of volunteer organizations such as Project Abraham, and the generosity of Canadians, the Yezidis have no hope of recovering from their nightmare.  
Our immediate need is to raise $300,000, which includes both the cost of sponsoring more Yezidis to Canada, who are desperate to leave Turkey and Iraq and funding the day-to-day needs of the severely traumatized women and children survivors of ISIS who have already arrived in the GTA. 

We are counting on you for your support.  Please give generously to Project Abraham.
