Another shipment in the pipeline

"Another shipment of chemotherapy drugs is well on the way and has in fact reached Mosul Airport where the hospital will pick it up in the near future. This shipment was the first funded entirely by others through Life for Relief and Development. My own contributions have necessarily been interrupted in the last couple months while I have been recovering from surgery and paying down my credit card balances.

The plight of Iraq's hospitals including the Mosul Oncology and Nuclear Medicine Hospital remains dire according to all available reports. Supplies, particularly chemotherapy drugs, by Kimadia (the Ministry of Health's purchasing agency) are sparse or nonexistent and unpredictable."
Just a drop in the bucket. But if that drop were directed to you, it might seem as a ocean.
