There are 41 children in a Syrian orphanage who were born to Yazidi women

A new report on NPR by Jane Arraf looks at a Syrian orphanage where children born to Yazidi women, victims of sexual assault by ISIS, live.

“In the 1 1/2-year-old’s ears are the gold earrings she wore when she was brought to the orphanage in NE Syria as a baby — a sign that she had not been unloved. She’s 1 of 41 children there born to ISIS fighters and the Iraqi Yazidi women they enslaved.”

The article notes also “many of these mothers don’t know the orphanage exists.”
