Many of you recall 5-year-old Mustafa, who was critically wounded in Fallujah, Iraq by a US bomb at the age of 2 years. In 2008, he came to Portland for three months and received life-saving medical care at Doernbecher Children’s Hospital. Our entire community fell in love with this brave and determined little boy who showed us the human and very personal side of war.
Mustafa is now 16 years old. He and his mother, Nidhal, just completed nearly ten months in Portland receiving medical care for their war injuries. They will return to Iraq and the rest of their family on March 7th.
Mustafa and his family have touched our hearts! Now we are fundraising, and with your help we can buy Mustafa’s essential medical supplies that cost $5000/year. We also want to fund critical housing needs that will improve Mustafa’s health — plumbing, clean running water for drinking and bathing, and a kitchen. They have none of these things now. $50,000.00 will cover all these expenses.
Please help in our fundraising to keep Mustafa healthy! We invite you to join us for a dinner and fundraiser to support Mustafa and his family as he and his mother return to Iraq. There will be an auction, a slideshow, and a gathering of friends at the dinner.
Event and Dinner: $25 per person for a delicious dinner provided by Moonlight Grill in Tigard.
Moonlight Grill is donating a significant portion of the food costs to our fundraising campaign for Mustafa. We are grateful and encourage you to eat there and thank them for supporting Mustafa!
