This marks our 8th mission to Iraq and we had our biggest group yet at 56 volunteers. This included 15 dentists, 2 physicians and for the first time in Iraq an optical team. As in the past, our camps were held in Kerbala and Najaf. Not only did GKF grow but so did the schools we are working at. In Najaf, we worked out of the newly built Al Zahra School. For the first time in Najaf, the mission was held in air conditioned facilities. In Kerbabla, the school there has also grown. GKF was working out of the girls wing, however the school as opened a brand new wing next door for the boys.
