A short film was shown highlighting the critical role of Peshmargas and their passion for protecting the land and people of Kurdistan

One of those in attendance introduced himself as a father of a martyred man. “It is an honor to see Rwanga Foundation showing the respect to those who sacrificed their lives to make Kurdistan a safe place and help aid their family”.
