In 2011 and 2013, Healing Children of Conflict (HCC) brought to Grand Rapids an Iraqi boy who lost one of his legs due to a US missile assault near his home in Baghdad. HCC was able to raise funds to bring him to West Michigan so he could be fitted for a prosthetic and get physical therapy to assist him with walking.
Hamzah has grown up and he now enjoys activities like swimming. HCC is bringing him back for a third time to be fitted for a new prosthetic and will be spending part of June in Grand Rapids.
Please join us for a spaghetti dinner, silent auction, information on other HCC campaigns and a raffle. The benefit for Hamzah will be held on Sunday, June 19, 6pm at Plymouth United Church of Christ, located at 4010 Kalamazoo SE, Grand Rapids.
Tickets are $10 for Adults and $5 for children 12 and under. You can buy tickets at the event. For those wanting to purchase tickets ahead of time, please send us a message at firstname.lastname@example.org.
