They spoke about the subject of hygiene within the camps and the the importance of keeping the camps clean. The subjects of education, water, electricity, food items and other subjects, were also spoken about and how to improve the circumstances within the camps.
After two years had passed since the calamity befell Shingal and the terrorists of Daa’ash (ISIS) had entered it, on the 3rd of August 2016, the calamity that came upon Shingal was remembered at 18 IDP camps. This took place under the supervision of BRHA.
The managements of the camps Mamliyan, Mamrashan, Shekhan, Esyan, Sharya, Kabartu 1, Kabartu 2, Khanky, Dawidiya, Bersivy 1, Bersivy 2, Germawa, Darkar, Bardarash, Chamishko, Rawanga, Bajid Kandala 1 and Bajid Kandala 2, remembered this day. The managements of the camps emphasized the role of the Peshmerga of Kurdistan and their courage in protecting and freeing the districts that had been conquered by Daa’ash (ISIS) and also how the Dohuk governorate has supported the Yezidi people. Another speech was given about the people that are currently under the custody of Daa’ash and the role of the President of Kurdistan was pointed out and how his thoughts go out to all martyrs, wounded and prisoners of war. They also spoke about the effort the President makes in trying to improve the living conditions of the IDPs and his attempts to liberate the prisoners from the clutches of Daa’ash (ISIS). What was also spoken about were the attempts of the President and the KRG to rebuild the affected areas and for the calamity that befell Shingal to be recognized as a genocide.
With the purpose of safeguarding the health of the IDPs, in order for them to become more aware of health issues and the safeguarding of their health (especially during the summer), a cleaning event was organized at these two camps. This was organized by the directorate of health protection, in cooperation with BRHA and with the support of UNICEF.

During the visit they talked about the living circumstances of the IDPs in general. After that, the delegation and the management of the camp visited the camp and two IDP families living at the camp.
