In The News: "Birth Defects And Rubble Still Scar Fallujah, Iraq"

A destroyed home in Fallujah, Iraq.

A recent article in Reuters highlighted the continued need in Iraqi cities like Fallujah. Having recently seen the need first-hand, our staff can confirm that the city's infrastructure is still in shambles, and locals are blaming the residual pollution from chemical weaponry like depleted uranium for their city's rising spike in birth defects.

That's why we plan to return to Fallujah in 2012 to help save children and train doctors there.

To help us go back, you can give to our Remedy Mission program here. To read more of the original Reuters article, go here.
