Several Yazidi women and girls who’ve fled to Canada to escape lives of persecution and sex slavery have reported threatening and menacing phone calls from men identifying themselves as their former captors.

Rev. Majed El Shafie of One Free World International says his organization has had to step in to help these survivors in the absence of government.

He joins True North’s Andrew Lawton to discuss.

A Canadian broadcaster and columnist, Andrew serves as a journalism fellow at True North and host of The Andrew Lawton Show.

We’re asking readers, like you, to make a contribution in support of True North’s fact-based, independent journalism.

Unlike the mainstream media, True North isn’t getting a government bailout. Instead, we depend on the generosity of Canadians like you.

How can a media outlet be trusted to remain neutral and fair if they’re beneficiaries of a government handout? We don’t think they can.

This is why independent media in Canada is more important than ever. If you’re able, please make a tax-deductible donation to True North today. Thank you so much.
