Remember them all: A portrait of Aya

Time to invest Iraq’s wealth in its future

Recently I visited a primary school in Basra as part of a UNICEF team. As our plane landed at Basra airport by night, I could see flames shooting out of the oil wells that dot the landscape.

Unfortunately, this wealth is not evident in the infrastructure of the city. Driving through the town, I saw poorly maintained roads and garbage piled in the streets. Many…
