World Vision resumes in Iraq

By May 6, 2004

Iraq (MNN)–World Vision has reopened its offices in Iraq. This follows a temporary closure in April after a wave of kidnappings and murders of aid workers.

World Vision teams continue to offer relief services throughout the war-torn country. Operations have resumed to full strength in northern and western Iraq.

Among their work, delivery of emergency health equipment such as gauze, sutures, antiseptics, blood-giving sets and intravenous equipment to hospitals in northern Iraq, along with wheelchairs and crutches to help people with disabilities.

The teams are working to represent the name and love of Jesus Christ through their efforts to meet both physical and spiritual needs in that war-torn country.
