Welcome Farooq

Farooq and his father, above right, travelled together from Kurdistan with other families to Israel, arriving this morning. Until the time they arrived, there was no place for Farooq in any hospital.

It was a miracle that God opened the door at Schneider Hospital where they accepted him just in time for his arrival this morning!

We met them at the airport. Faruq is not in a good condition, looking very tired and was needing transport in a wheel chair. Thankfully we could go immediately to the cardiac unit at Schneider Hospital.

There was a very helpful lady in the International Health department, as we are not familiar with working with this hospital.

Farooq was taken good care of today by the doctor and nurses there, who performed assessments, including an echo. We hope tomorrow to know more about what treatment could be available for him. He is in a bad condition, with extremely swollen legs and belly, having back pain. We need to pray for this boy; he is a teenager, fourteen years old, and we need to pray that God will give him new life. It is very sad to see him so sick.
