Shifa Gardi


Remembering Kurdish journalist Shifa Gardi. She was a passionate journalist following a lead to find abandoned ISIS mass graves. She was killed by a roadside bomb during the battle for Mosul in Iraq, this year. We will not forget her passion, courage and pursuit of truth and justice. Her legacy lives on.

It is people like her, that make this profession so respectable and a pillar for the world. We must document what must never be forgotten. We must share truth.

Her last live coverage:

One of her best friends, Kurdish singer Helly Luv, dedicated a song to the struggle against the atrocities in this region. She is now at the top of an ISIS hit list. May God honor and be with each person fighting, empowering and bringing awareness to the fight for freedom from these crimes against humanity.
