We are a global community of peacemakers remaking the world by providing lifesaving heart surgeries for children, food and shelter for those persecuted by extremists, education for at-risk children, and small-business empowerment grants so people can put their own lives back together.

Our story began in a hotel lobby inside Iraq in 2007. A fearful father, his beautiful daughter, her ailing heart, and the simple question, “Please, will you try to save her?” From that day, we threw ourselves into eradicating the backlog of children waiting in line for lifesaving heart surgery, often in the most war-torn, unreached parts of the Iraq like Fallujah and Tikrit.

These years of investing in Iraq’s medical infrastructure through training and lifesaving care resulted in over 1,300 heart surgeries. Because of our world renowned surgical teams, we were invited into every major region of the country. When ISIS rampaged onto the global scene, we were uniquely positioned to expand our programming so that we could continue to go to the conflict-zones others were fleeing, to love those no one else will love.

On the heals of our success in Iraq, we are now being invited to provide lifesaving heart surgeries for children around the world, in polarizing conflict-zones like Libya, Pakistan, and Iran.

Each person’s story is different, but the thing we all have in common is a desire to be peacemakers, to bring people together, and to encourage understanding. Our staff and volunteer base are diverse, including Muslims and Christians, Iraq War veterans and pacifists, conservatives and liberals. It is the belief that we are having an impact in the lives of people we love that drew us to work for Preemptive Love—it’s what keeps us coming to work day after day.

No, but we are a faith-oriented community which encourages every person to respectfully bring their faith to the workplace. In our office and in our fields of service around the world, we have Muslims, Christians, doubters, and people who do not affiliate with any faith working side-by-side.

For us, faith and worldview are essential to being human, too important to avoid.

We work with anyone who will help us wage peace, bring communities together, and serve those others fear or forget.

To that end, we have partnered with governments around the world to help them develop hospitals and save the lives of their own children. We worked alongside the Iraqi military to air-drop essential aid for cities besieged by ISIS; we provided first-ever care for Libyan children during the ongoing civil war, and we continue to save the lives of Iranian children with the approval of the Iranian government.

We are privileged to work alongside some incredible organizations! See Our Partners page to read more.
