Dear Faithful Supporters of For Hearts and Souls,

I would like to thank you for your faithfulness. And I wanted to let you know what your
contributions supported in 2017:

Duhok, Kurdistan: 7 open heart surgeries & 22 cardiac catheterizations
Slemani, Kurdistan: 19 cardiac catheterizations

Kudjip, Papua New Guinea: screening for catheterization trip in 2018

Monrovia, Liberia: screening

Pristina, Kosovo: conference lectures on complex congenital cardiac anomalies and
medical ethics
Karbala, Iraq: screening and preparation for subsequent cath and surgical missions

Hilo, Kona, & Kahului, Hawaii: screening of athletes

Barcelona, Spain: World Congress of Pediatric Cardiology and Cardiac Surgery

Tel Aviv, Israel: meeting with cardiologists and cardiac surgeons at Sheba and Wolfsson
Hospitals to increase the number of children being accepted from Kurdistan
Duhok, Kurdistan: 13 cardiac catheterizations

Kathmandu, Nepal: lectures at international cardiac conference

We already started 2018 with a trip to Karbala, Iraq, where we performed 8 cardiac
catheterizations. They would like us to return for a combined surgical and catheterization
mission. We have plans to return to Kurdish Iraq in February. For the rest of this year, we have
invitations to three other locations in Arab Iraq, as well as invitations to return to Kosovo,
Mongolia, Nepal, Zambia, and Papua New Guinea, where we would conduct a first-ever
catheterization mission.

We have sought to be faithful with your prayer and financial support. Thank you for partnering
with us to make this work possible.

To God be all the glory,
Kirk A. Milhoan, MD, PhD, FACC, FAAP
