Help us to save Salah! 

Salah Kalil Ibrahem, 9 years old, born in Talafar and living in Mossul
(North Iraq), has a serious heart desease. He risks to die and he can't be
treated in his Country, because of the lack of medicines and medical
equipment due to the embargo.

He needs a very difficult surgical operation that can be done in a special
centre for heart surgery in Liverpool (U.K.). The operation will be done
thanks to some doctors who in recent years have already cooperated with
the Italian association "A bridge to Baghdad" and went to Iraq. 

The arrival of the child in the hospital is planned about for next March

We are collecting money for the hospital and for the travel (about 30,000
dollars) and we are organizing the travel. We are now looking for people
living in Liverpool area who could visit Salah and his uncle in hospital
and help them for the problems they might have in a foreign Country. We
need in particular people who speak Arabic and English. Thanks for any
kind of help you could give to save Salah. 

If you have any useful information, please contact "A bridge to Baghdad" : 

address: via della Guglia 69/a 00186 Roma Italy
