Thank you for helping us support Preemptive Love
July 19th, 2012
Every two months, Congress Clothing picks an organization to support with a percentage of sales. In May and June it was The Preemptive Love Coalition. To say “they’re up to some great things” would be a serious understatement. They are changing lives every day, and we are so excited to be a part of it. Hole in the Roof matches the gift up to $1000, so combined with Congress we were able to give $2355.84.
This is all thanks to you! Your support is much appreciated.
The Preemptive Love Coalition provides lifesaving heart surgeries to Iraqi children and facilitates hands-on training for local doctors in pursuit of peace between communities that are at odds.
The Backlog is Iraq’s enormous list of children waiting for lifesaving heart surgery. Roughly 11,000 new children are added to the list each year. In 2010 less than 1% of these children were served inside the country. Our two-week long Remedy Missions and our one-year long Remedy Fellowship exists to exponentially increase local capacity and equip Iraqi medial teams so they can eradicate the backlog by increasing heart surgeries performed in Iraq as well as hands-on training for Iraqis.
