Our biggest success of the year was the creation of a farm for the children to grow their own food. In July enough funds had been raised to make a commitment to provide protein for the rest of the year. These projects at the orphanage were in addition to the wells and water tower we had already paid for.

Just in October, more than 250 Iraqis have died in protests aimed at forcing the entire government to resign. So far most of the protests have been in Baghdad and the southern parts of Iraq and not in the areas where we serve in the north. What does this mean for Christmas for Refugees events?

Why is there such a horrific need for adult special needs diapers in Iraq? I am beginning to understand the cause and it is not going to go away. Many of those born with neurological problems have high levels of uranium and thorium in their bodies. A lot of the ammunition we used in Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan was made out of depleted uranium.

Just a few short months ago we invested just $7,000 to rent about five acres of land and buy seed, fertilizers and hand tools for the orphanage children to start their own farm. But the farm is a lot more than the food it is producing. The orphaned children are learning farming skills and reliance on themselves rather than on charity.

A farm of this size cannot feed the 87 children that are currently in the orphanage. But the farm will do more than supply some of the needed food.
