Smiling Jalal

Despite being in a hospital setting with strangers wearing masks around him, Jalal was still joyful and full of smiles. Jalal truly has a sweet nature. Even after multiple tests, he was still smiling.

Jalal is a sweet nine-month-old boy from Gaza. We praise God that he and his mother received permission to receive care in Israel.

When we first met him at the border crossing, we recognized how blue he was due to his low oxygen saturation. Jalal has a complex congenital heart condition called Tricuspid Atresia. He has four other siblings, two of which also have congenital heart abnormalities.Tomorrow he will have a cardiac catheterization.

Please keep Jalal in your prayers, for any procedures he will undergo.
