Baby Judi, refugee of only a few days old was recently saved from Hydrocephalus with the help of a private donor through HelpIraq.org and the assistance of some of our MERCI physicians here. With limited time, the necessary money was raised to pay for the surgery that was needed to save the little boy’s life.
Displaced family is from Dehuk and in desperate need of financial help to save their 12 year old daughter, Manal, to keep one of her eyes from going blind. When the family reached out they asked if we can help since it cost them around $1300 for a previous surgery. We would also like to thank all of our MERCI physicians who donated their time and expertise on these projects.
