Remedy And A Girl Named Rozha

August 16, 2010 by  


screen shot from Ricky Norris of Discover the Journey – beautiful video yet to come!

It was exactly 4:30 PM in Iraq today when we all watched little Rozha Sabah, an 11 year old Kurd, become the first child to be operated on through PLC’s Remedy Mission! Rozha is the first of what we hope to be dozens of Kurdish and Arab children who will receive lifesaving heart surgeries these next two weeks.

Exactly 24 hours before Rozha was ushered into the Operating Room, a plane landed in Iraq carrying a team of medical doctors and nurses who had heard Rozha’s story and the story of thousands more just like hers and vowed to come be the Remedy.

Thanks to Preemptive Love Coalition’s partnership with Dr. Novick and the International Children’s Heart Foundation – and our wonderful donors (That’s You!) – we were not only able to save Rozha’s life and so many more this week, but we have the chance to train, equip, and empower local Iraqi doctors and nurses to carry on the task of saving lives in Iraq long after we’re gone.

Stay tuned to follow the stories of more like Rozha and of the doctors that are saving their lives!

Four more surgeries on deck for tomorrow!
