Angels deliver support to the Balad E/R just in time!

We recently started supporting the main base hospital at Balad Air Base. This is the largest military hospital in the middle-east. This hospital cares for American military as well as Iraqi children.

Thanks to our generous Angels, we are already making a difference! Here's an email I just received:

Well I have received Blankets,Flip flops, and some games, let me tell you the timing was perfect. We got a patient - a 3 year old - with burns and we had nothing as far as diapers and sure enough the next day I had Diapers big enough for him in my mail, then yesterday I received the blankets and we had 12 American patients that we used them on so they wouldn't have to use the itchy wool ones. Today I recieved flip flops and we currently have 5 patients here waiting to fly out to Germany that needed them. I also took some of the blankets to the ICU and wards for the soldiers and gave them to the 4 children we currently have in our facility. The blankets where wonderful! Such a big hit! We have been getting really busy which is not good, means too many people being injured. Well I must get to work. Thanks for everything. SrA Shannon. G., E/R
