At last hope that Aram can live

Today we found baby Aram gasping for life in the ICU of a children’s hospital, in her family’s country of refuge from the Syrian civil war. It was a joy to bring hope to her young mother, and also to the medical staff in the hospital. They’ve been fighting to keep her alive, even though there didn’t appear to be any way in that country for Aram to have the heart surgery which can allow her to live and grow. It’s a simple message we carry: every life is precious, and we cannot turn away from a dying child when it is in our power to give her the care that she needs. As soon as the family can arrange passports we hope to bring Aram to the Sheba Medical Center in Tel Aviv.
