GRM has had a presence in the northern region of Iraq since 2017. In 2021, operations expanded into a permanent office and official registration with KRI. Together with the Duhok Department of Health and Azadi Hospital System, we are working on:

  1. Opening the first undifferentiated emergency department in Kurdistan
  2. Professionalizing the EMS transport system based out of Azadi Hospital
  3. Building emergency medicine as a discipline in Kurdistan
  4. Funding pediatric surgeries
  5. Ultrasound fellowship

Yesterday, GRM founder Pete Reed and was killed in Bakhmut, Ukraine.

Yesterday, GRM founder Pete Reed was killed in Bakhmut, Ukraine. Pete was the bedrock of GRM, serving as Board President for 4 years. In January, Pete stepped away from GRM to work with Global Outreach Doctors on their Ukraine mission and was killed while rendering aid.

This is a stark reminder of the perils rescue and aid workers face in conflict zones as they serve citizens caught in the crossfire. Pete was just 33 years old, but lived a life in service of others, first as a decorated US Marine and then in humanitarian aid. GRM will strive to honor his legacy and the selfless service he practiced.

We fully support Pete’s family, friends, and colleagues during this devastating time.
