Iraqi Hospitals in Need
How many children do you know under the age of 12 that have been the victim of a gunshot wound or sustained an injury from a mortar explosion? And what would it take to bring hope and healing to a young one injured in the war against ISIS?
Recent ATP trips have shown the seriousness of the need for ongoing medical support and help for the local community. Far too many children and adults in Iraq have severe medical needs that are the result of ISIS brutality. This puts a major strain on hospitals and clinics in the area. Just imagine the number of bandages and basic supplies a hospital needs to treat just one victim.
ATP supports children recovering from war injuries. We previously brought you stories of young Maryam – a little girl shot through the eye by ISIS snipers. She is recovering now, but has received multiple surgeries and extended medical treatments both in Iraq and abroad. We also told you about Mohammed – a boy shot in the back by ISIS as he was going to get food for his family. During his rehabilitation, Mohammed broke his femur and had to undergo emergency surgery to repair it so he could continue regaining the use of his legs. These are just two stories of children that have needed medical care in Iraq.
The Project C.U.R.E. Initiative
In partnership with Project C.U.R.E, ATP has set a goal to raise $100,000 to support our joint project to deliver $500,000 in medical supplies to Al Hamdania Hospital in Iraq. This hospital has served many children that were injured in the war with ISIS and now the hospital and the local community really need our help.
