2013 Iraq and Arbaeen

GKF returned to the Al-Zahra school for orphans in Najaf, Iraq. This year the group comprised of 6 dentists and 20 volunteers from all walks of life. This was our 5th mission to Iraq but by far one of the most challenging. This trip 90% of our equipment and supplies were stopped at customs in Najaf. Despite our best efforts we were not able to get them cleared. But we had a wonderful group of volunteers who got together and with a lot of creativity, improvisation, and innovation were able to treat 300 children provide almost $170,00 worth of dental care. Thank you to all the volunteers for your patience and flexibility that allowed this mission to be extremely successful. Not only did everyone work without complaint by they all did it with a smile!
