You may have heard some of the news coverage in the past few weeks about an Iraqi orphanage for boys with cerebral palsy and similar illnesses, found by a National Guard patrol who discovered the boys living in squalid conditions; no food or clothing, etc. Well, here’s some good news about efforts to help the boys, from our Inspired! Individuals section.
A Wisconsin Guardsmen, Maj. Scott Southworth, who has already adopted a special needs orphan from Iraq after being stationed there, has begun organizing an effort to attain entry visas and find families to host all 24 of these unfortunate special needs boys. He has already heard from families in Vermont and Arizona. The wonderful story is on a video here: WISN-TV Milwaukee.
