Jeremy will take you on a journey that began with the wish of a father to save his child, and led to his mission of eradicating the backlog of Iraqi children waiting for lifesaving heart surgery. Through this journey, he will describe how living a life of preemptive love can break down the walls of division in Iraq. In his role as Executive Director and co-Founder of the Preemptive Love Coalition, Jeremy Courtney has helped fund lifesaving heart surgeries for 180 Iraqi children. His passion and love for the people of Iraq led him to move to Sulaimaniyah with his family and he is currently leading his organization in an effort to provide training for local pediatric cardiac doctors, nurses, and medical technicians across the country. His goal is to eliminate the backlog of Iraqi children waiting in line for heart surgery.
