New Year’s Reception at Bellevue Palace

Two years ago, the President of our organization Farida khalaf was nominated by the German state of Baden-Württemberg to the New Year’s Reception at Bellevue Palace, hosted by the President and First Lady of the Republic of Germany. Farida was honoured for her outstanding contribution to human rights, stand against sexual violence, dedication to the recognition of the Yazidi Genocide and advocacy for the protection of Yazidis and other minorities.The genocide has already been recognized by the United Nations and several individual governments (parliaments). However, six years later, the German Bundestag has yet to recognize this tragedy. We at Farida Global Organization (Farida e.V.) will continue the advocacy campaign to work with the German government and NGOs with the hope of an official recognition of the genocide.
