2012 - Dr. Dale Dewar, Canada
Dr. Dewar lives on a cash-strapped struggling Land Trust in Saskatchewan. She and her husband are delighted with the raffle win and plan to put it to good use in their continued exploration of alternative energy and lifestyles. Part of the ticket was purchased by the PGS, administrative officer, Andrea Levy, who earmarked her win to visit and provide supportive care to a dear friend on the other side of the continent. There will be many people and projects who will benefit!
2011 - Dr. John Rachow, USA

Dr. Rachow has attended several past IPPNW Congresses (Melbourne 1999, Helsinki 2008, and Basel 2010), and is looking forward to the Congress in Hiroshima in 2012, which he hopes will be one of the greatest yet.

Petry and Pohlmeier, Germany
IPPNW was grateful to everyone from all over the world who bought and sold tickets
or helped to promote the event. The support we received is a good example of the
international cooperation that IPPNW has practiced for nearly 30 years. To show our appreciation, we pulled three more names to send a signed copy of

2008 - Dr. Englisch-Fritz, Germany
Dr. Englisch-Fritz describes herself as someone who isn't actively involved in health issues and politics, but who is very sympathetic to the engagement of the IPPNW colleagues in her clinic. "I share the value of the IPPNW commitment for the abolition of nuclear weapons and the work against war." The raffle winner decided that she would only accept a portion of the $10,000 prize and would donate part of it to support the work of IPPNW.
