Haider Alsaedy / Iraqi Health Now

Middle Eastern restaurants in Kalamazoo are catering a dinner Friday, March 1st, to help send aid to people in Iraq. It starts at 6 p.m. at First Presbyterian Church, 321 South Street, in downtown Kalamazoo. The money raised will support the group Iraqi Health Now that has been sending money and supplies needed in Basra in southern Iraq since 2006. The project was the idea of Haider Alsaedy, who came to Kalamazoo from Iraq in 1991. He wanted to help people in his hometown recover from the U.S.
