Racheal met baby Lawa for the first time shortly after his family took him to the Raparin Teaching Hospital For Children. As soon as Lawa was born his parents discovered that he had Down syndrome accompanied with two holes in his little heart. With nowhere else for his family to go Racheal stepped in to facilitate his recovery and provide for regular checkups including transportation to and from an established and trusted clinic every month. Amazingly Lawa’s heart healed all by itself and Lawa has been a healthy boy ever since, growing up with his loving family in Erbil. Over the years we have kept in touch and supplied equipment to aid his development. What a joy to see him now!
