“ I don’t do this because of religion”-Steve Maman liberated 140 women from ISIS.
Steve Maman obtained many business contacts in Iraq and other parts of the Middle East as a custom car curator and crystal manufactor over the years of his career. With these contacts in the fall of 2014, Steve Maman began a private effort to liberate Yazidis and Christians after ISIS attacked Northern Iraq. The success of 102 private-funded liberations inspired him to keep going, and he formed CYCI June 25, 2015. CYCI has been a great success in a short few months and recieved a lot of media attention.
