Update From The O.R.—Welcome to Remedy Mission XII!

We’re back in Najaf for our 12th Remedy Mission!

If you’ve been following our work recently, you may be surprised to hear we even left the city since we just wrapped Remedy Mission XI there a couple weeks ago. Some of the local hospital staff weren’t even sure we’d left!

But the first patient for this mission was lifted onto the operating table this morning, and we’re excited to introduce her to you. She’s a little 6-year-old girl named Zahraa, and she’s getting her heart fixed now!

Watch the video above to hear more about her situation, and then come back in a few hours to find out how she’s doing.

More to come…
