Iraqi Girl Arrives in Spain for Life-Saving Surgery
Iraqi Girl Arrives in Spain for Life-Saving Surgery

This week PCRF sent four-year-old Lara and her mother from Iraq to Spain in order for the child to have life-saving open-heart surgery. Lara was born with a heart defect that could not be treated in her war-torn country. She will have surgery at Complejo Hospitalario Universitario a Coruna, Spain, in cooperation with Spanish NGO Fundacion Infancia Solidaria. Dr. Victor Hernandez, a long-time volunteer surgeon with PCRF, will perform the operation.  Lara and her mother were met by volunteers at the airport to help them get set up for this complex and long operation.
