Onaees is a two year old boy from Iraqi Kurdistan. He was diagnosed with a rare cardiac condition called tricuspid atresia with double outlet right ventricle. His organs are also reversed, on the opposite side of his body from where they should be. Onaees also has a reactive airway disease and is frequently hospitalized for this. He is a sweet-natured boy and playful. It is evident how much he loves his family. We welcome Onaees and his mother to Israel, and hope they can find the health care Onaees needs while here. Please pray for Onaees and his mother.
Onaees arrived in Israel yesterday along with his mother and a group of other Kurdish families also requiring medical care for their children. We welcome them all.
