Congratulations to Jon Vidar for His Award-Winning Remedy Mission Photo!

7 yr-old Hussein Khalid's surgery (as seen in the heart rate monitor)

7 yr-old Hussein Khalid’s surgery reflected in the heart rate monitor.

No amount of blog posts could quite communicate all the good that has come from our August Remedy Mission with the International Children’s Heart Foundation.

We saw partnerships formed and solidified, peace was forged between people who came in opposing one another, local involvement increased in Iraq, Kurdish and Arab doctors and nurses were trained and, of course, children’s lives were saved.

And now we’re pleased to congratulate Remedy Mission photographer, Jon Vidar, on his exceptional photo!

The above photo won the People’s Choice Award at FotoWeekDC 2010 and is now hanging in the Corcoran Gallery of Art. 6,500 submissions from over 35 countries made for some steep competition – congrats, Jon!
