Retired engineer Peter Kosel was surfing blogs from Iraq when he found one discussing a shortage of medical supplies at a hospital in Mosul, Iraq. Peter decided to personally send the hospital some of the necessary drugs for cancer treatment. He then started the Mosel Chemotherapy Project. Illinois Coalition for Peace and Justice's Potluck Democracy program is partnering with Peter Kosel to help bring more supplies to the hospitals. Peter blogs about the program at Mosel Chemotherapy Project—Waldschrat's Mirror.
