On 3 June 2017 representatives of the KES family (KES, KELS, KEF and EES) met in the premises of the association Peri e.V. in Cologne. The KELS delegation, who had recently returned from a Kurdistan trip, reported on the impressive journey. Numerous photos were shown and impressions passed on. As a matter of fact, all participants were enthusiastic about the trip and would like to participate in the next trip.

In addition, concrete projects were discussed, which are to be implemented in the near future. Our special guest was Dr. Irfan Ortac, chairman of the newly founded Central Council of the Ezidis in Germany. Dr. Ortac presented the new association and its goals and visions. We thank him for attending our meeting. We also thank our host, the Peri e.V., who provided us with free catering.
