Emergency transfer from Gaza to Jerusalem

This evening we met a very friendly grandma as she arrived by ambulance with her cute tiny baby grandson Ezzedin in the Hadassah Hospital. The little patient is 12 days old and this is also how long he has been in hospital, kept alive by an infusion of a special medication to keep a small ductus open in his heart. As an emergency case he came from Gaza to Jerusalem, with his adorable grandma always carrying him at her side. It is just so touching to see this fragile creature of our great God, who brought the child so far.

Ezzedin is a dreamer. His tiny arms are stretching out, longing for something, catching the air. Occasionally a charming smile is running over his face. Moreover our baby is always moving and I wish I never had to stop watching it.

He already came through his first echo in the new hospital and the doctors decided to do a catheterization in the next days to try to open up the severe pulmonary stenosis which is threatening his life.

Please wrap our beloved tiny Ezzedin in your soft prayers for this is the comfort he needs!

I alone know the plans I have for you, plans to bring you prosperity and not disaster, plans to bring about the future you hope for.
Jeremiah 29:11
