Since 2005 Fallujah has witnessed some of the highest rates of cancer and birth defects in the world. Many attribute this public health crisis to American weapons used during the assaults on the city in 2004. Then during the period of violence beginning in 2013, Fallujah’s hospitals were bombed repeatedly by American and Iraqi forces, and then looted by ISIS.
Fallujah’s Maternity and Children’s Hospital continues to struggle with the city’s public health crisis, and without essential equipment. We are partnering with Iraq Hope, a Japanese NGO, and Irak Solidaritet, a Swedish solidarity organization, to purchase a new echo-cardiogram machine for the Maternity and Children’s Hospital.
Our fundraising goal is $6,000.
Please join us in this act of reparations.
