Hello,

first of all, thank you for those who already started to donate money. I just wanted to say that a $5 donation does make a difference. Iraq is a very cheap country, and with few bucks you can buy a reasonable amount of medication.
I have received several emails from people who wanted to send the money to me by mail.
here is my address:

Attn. Majid Jarrar
650 Pearson College Drive
Victoria, V9C 4H7
BC, Canada

I will wire the money to Raed, and i will expect him to send me receipts back from my family in Baghdad. I will scan the receipts and email it back to the donors.

thank you,

Hello, everybody.
I'm fine, busy with my freaking timetable... [assuming that you all are asking about my absence]

Briefly, I'd like to say that the situation in Iraq is not getting better.

And I'm not able to do anything, that's pretty much frustrating to me; I'm here with lots and lots of work, thousands of miles .. I mean, kilometers away from home (I EVEN started to measure in miles, Gee!)
The Jarrar family [that's us] are doing a small humanitarian project which aims to assist hospitals and some families in Iraq.
please check Raed's, Khalid's or mom's blog, the post on Wednesday October 20, for more details about the project and how to help.
thank you,
