Preemptive Love Coalition | Iraq

One Day's Wages is proud to partner with Preemptive Love Coalition, an organization that is providing lifesaving heart surguries to children in Iraq. ODW will match the $5,000 raised for a total of $10,000.

The funds that are raised through this partnership will go towards the medical supplies for Preemptive Love's upcoming Remedy Missions. This two week intensive will provide surgery for 20+ children, as well as 5,000 hours of pediatric cardiac training for local medical teams.

Who Is Preemptive Love Coalition?

Preemptive Love Coalition is a non-profit organization that is providing lifesaving heart surgeries for Iraqi children. Iraq has one of the largest backlogs of children waiting in line for lifesaving heart surgery in the world. PLC was created to save the lives of the thousands of children waiting in the backlog while training and raising up local pediatric heart surgeons that can be a long-term local solution.  PLC is working to exponentially increase local capacity, and equip Iraqi medical teams so they they can eradicate the backlog.  

Why Heart Surgery?  Why Iraq?

Iraq has an extremely high rate of birth defects of the heart, the most common being Congenital Heart Disease (CHD). CHD usually requires some form of treatment. In the most simple cases, it can be treated with medication. Most cases, however, require a complex open-heart surgical correction.  

Because the need is so great, and the resources to operate are so limited, thousands of children are placed on "waiting lists" every year. Today, there are over 30,000 children that are in urgent need of lifesaving heart surgery. 

What is the ODW | PLC Partnership? 

One Day's Wages' partnership with Preemptive Love Coalition will help to fund a "Remedy Mission." This two week intensive program focuses on providing over 5,000 hours of training to local medical teams, as well as providing life-saving pediatric heart surgeries to over 20 Iraqi children. The funds raised through this matching grant will be used to purchase all of the medical supplies and disposables that will be used during the Remedy Mission. [Learn More
