I was honored to serve as a bilingual public health educator and triage nurse in latin America on the USNS Comfort in 2007 AND 2008. I visited seven countries and provided care to thousand of people. The compassioin and kindness I witnessed but moreover was given in doing this important work was life changing. I remember a young man who had suffered a severe brain injury in a motor vehicle accident being brought to our clinic in Guatemala . he had already gone through rehabilitation in Guatemela City but his parent had driven seven hours to see us oping we could give them information on how to further help him. We worked for hours tring to make contacts. We all were so moved by his parents hope in us. Eventually we did make contacts that woud eventually provide him some further treatment back in the capital. I family walked two days from their mountain village to see us about a speciic issue. We did provide care and as they started to leave for the two day walk back to their home the mother turned to me and gave me a big hug.. She said thank ou God bless you in Spanish and it was so heartfelt i cried when she left. The mothers and childen, all who came to us demonstrated such courage and such strength. I was honored to be there. It is difficult to describe what it is like to ride into a medical site whee 600 people are waiting for the medical team and as our bus arrives the entire crown breaks into cheering because we have come to help them. Little do they know how mch they give to us. It is about great hope and great faith that hearts and minds come together to share our humanity. That is what the PROJECT HOPE cause is all about.....our shared humanity.
My Name is Annie Javed I am a student . The way you help people through show is really great. I am on a mission which I named ''Love For Humanity''. This missions seems to be very difficult but I believe nothing is impossible. I really wish people of our world stop hating, abusing and cheating each other. Female's should get freedom so that they can freely do any work and study without any fear. Security for people so that they can feel safe. Stop Crimes, Robbery, Terrorism and Jealousy. We all can unite. This small effort will really work if we all unite we can really make this mission possible. Then this world will be a better place to live in. I want to see a smile on everyone's face want to see everyone happy. I want to make a Charity Foundation one day Hope that dream will come true Insha ALLAH.
Like if u want to support humanity....

The Basrah Children's Hospital opened in October 2010. Its focus is caring for children with cancer. Unfortunately, children in Southern Iraq have cancer rates 8 to 10 times higher than children in the West.
The Basrah Children's Hospital - the first new hospital built in Iraq in more than 30 years - is an example of Project HOPE's diligence to make sure the health needs of children are addressed.
