Several religious organizationsincluding Church World Service, Mennonite Central Committee, Jubilee Partners, Stop Hunger Now, and Sojournershave launched a campaign to raise $1 million to address critical health care needs of Iraqi children. The "All Our Children" campaign will raise funds to purchase items such as antibiotics, anesthesia, intravenous kits, and devices to monitor clean drinking water. This campaign, according to CWS director of emergency response Rick Augsburger, "is a unique grouping of faith-based efforts that are trying to work together to provide this support." The United Nations attributes the deaths of several hundred thousand Iraqi children to the effects of the U.S.-sponsored trade sanctions.
