His humanitarian activities have included food distributions, and helping to build an education and training centre. He has visited families like Eman’s, and retold their stories. Eman said
“Her husband was kidnapped at gunpoint and taken away by terrorists because he challenged their ideology and beliefs. He has been missing for months and since Mosul was ‘liberated’ he hasn’t yet returned.
Imam Kelwick added, “Eman doesn’t know if she’s a widow or not and the three daughters don’t know if they’re orphans either ?
When we asked her what we can do to help, after she told us about how she struggles to get food for her family and medicine for her ill daughter, she said: “Oh and we need a roof for our house.”
