Rozin Khalil Hanjool

Rozin KhalilRozin Khalil Hanjool set up a petition on July 21 calling for a meeting with the Home Secretary to discuss what the UK can do to support and protect survivors of sexual violence who have been abducted by extremists.

17-year-old Rozin, who is currently living in Foleshill, Coventry, was born in the village of Issia in Northern Iraq. She belongs to a Kurdish minority group called the Yazidi who are an ISIS target.

Rozin came to this country in 2008 on a visa with her mother and five siblings when it became clear that remaining in her village would be too dangerous. Her father had been living in England for four years at the time. A student at Lyng Hall College, Rozin is hoping to become a lawyer when she finishes her A-Levels.

Anyone wishing to sign the petition can do so here.
