Welcome Dina to Israel

Dina and her mother arrived today at Ben Gurion Airport, after traveling through the night from Kurdistan, northern Iraq.

Dina has a hole in her heart; the situation is complicated by her cleft lip and palate. It increases the risk for her having a general anesthesia, and has also caused problems with her feeding. Her anatomy makes the feeding unsafe, and therefore she is reported to have suffered from recurrent chest infections.

She has an appointment booked for the doctor for the day after tomorrow, at which point we hope the process will begin to help this little one get the help she needs.

Please pray for peace for her and her mother as they settle into two weeks of quarantine at our home in Jaffa.
