In this edition of Iraqi Women's Voices, Sarah Reith speaks with Claudia Lefko, an American educator, activist, and artist who has been advocating on behalf of Iraqi children since the mid-90's. Her articles detailing the situation of child cancer patients and the staff who care for them in Medical City, Baghdad, have appeared regularly in Common Dreams. She is deeply concerned with the rights of these most vulnerable patients to quality treatment and dignity. But her work encompasses nuances of fairness one rarely hears about. She can discuss the UN Convention on the rights of children to express themselves through art as grippingly as she tells about how those children make that artwork. She talks about the difficult choices Iraqi doctors make as they navigate the moral terrain of post-sanctions Iraq. Her insights, and the respect she has for the children she works with, will make this conversation about their often grim conditions a privilege to hear.
