Yasmin is one of the thousands of women who have suffered from conflict-related sexual violence perpetrated by ISIL from 2014 until their defeat in 2017. From the onset of the crisis, UNFPA established the Women & Girls’ Treatment and Support Centre to provide the necessary treatment as well as psychological and legal support to women and girls who managed to flee the terrorist group. The centre is currently supported by Canada and Sweden.This video gives us a glimpse of Yasmin’s suffering and introduces us to the services offered to survivors of sexual violence in Iraq.
