Samantha Power, Head of USAID, met with Nadia Murad, 2018 Nobel Peace Prize laureate, UNODC Goodwill Ambassador and founder of the Nadia Initiative Foundation to discuss support for Yazidis and other survivors of atrocities in Iraq and Syria, women's empowerment, survivor-oriented support and post-conflict development.

According to the USAID statement, Power stressed that the US government continues to advocate in Iraq for the involvement of the Yazidi minority in the implementation of the Shangal Agreement in order to ensure that the agreement meets the needs of the community, protects the rights of citizens and promotes safe, voluntary and long-term return.

Power and Murad also discussed the problems faced by Yazidis living in camps, including Al-Khol, and the need to help the Yazidi minority rebuild their lives.

Administrator Samantha Power thanked Nadia for her ongoing partnership with the organization and for being a member of the USAID Advisory Committee on Voluntary Foreign Aid.
