​In Kurdistan

It is called Radio Dange NWE, or New Voice Radio: the Kurdistan broadcaster designed to provide information to refugees and managed by a group of women, refugees themselves. The radio transmits from an apartment at the female centre of Halabja, an Iraqi province with a Kurdish majority. For more than a year now the speakers, all women, have been going on air daily from 8.00 a.m. to midday alternating songs, poems, political information, programmes or features providing precious advice about how to access legal and health assistance. Speaking in Arabic and Kurmanji, (a Kurdish dialect), the young women address the migrant community who have fled from the war, very often the same war that they themselves have fled from.
