Writing the closing post for a Remedy Mission feels a little bit like writing an acceptance speech for the Oscars (Or at least it's how I imagine it would feel!). It's simply overwhelming thinking back over the past two weeks, remembering all the smiles and the stories of the 24 children we witnessed being saved, the 20 hour work days that the surgical team gave, the thousands of hours of teaching that were given and received, and the joyous families who left the hospital with their healthy children in tow.
While there are so many things to focus on and so many thank yous that could be given - you are the one person I don't want to miss thanking.
Because, without you, we wouldn't have been able to bring our 7th Remedy Mission to Iraq.
Without you, we would still know some of the best doctors and nurses in the world, but we would have no way of actually bringing them to Iraq to save lives. Without you, we would continue to meet families all over Iraq with sick children, but we would have no remedy to offer them. Without you, we wouldn't have just witnessed our most successful, most lifesaving mission yet. And, without you, we wouldn't be just weeks away from our next Remedy Mission.
So in case you haven't noticed the pattern here. We don't like doing this without YOU!
Dramatic things happen when you give. This Remedy Mission was only more proof of that. Thank you for generosity. It's saving lives all over Iraq and for that I can't thank you enough.
Our 8th Remedy Mission is just around the corner, and we want you to be a part of it. To begin assembling the next medical team and to start gathering a new group of children who need to be saved from all over Iraq, donate here to make it happen in time for our next mission!
