Madeline Hayes with some Iraqi children.

This past summer, Missouri State University student Madeline Hayes embarked on a journey she would never forget.

She left the comforts of home to help those who are suffering in one of the world’s most dangerous cities – Mosul, Iraq.

A senior nursing major, Hayes spent a month in Mosul with Free Burma Rangers (FBR), a humanitarian service movement founded by David Eubank, a former U.S. Special Forces operative. FBR provides aid in the conflict areas of Burma, Iraq and Sudan.

Her dad, Tim Hayes, a local lawyer and ex-military man, had made six trips to Mosul with FBR and connected her with the organization. 

Hayes shares more about her life-changing adventure.
