Welcome Mohammed to Israel

Having landed in Amman yesterday, little Mohammed B and his mum and three other Kurdish mothers and babies, all traveled today with Jonathan to the border crossing with Israel, where co-workers Sebastian, Alena and I picked them up and brought them to our community home in Jaffa.

Mohammed’s mother seemed very happy to arrive. She and the parents who traveled with her, were all in good spirits.

Mohammad is around three months old now, and has been given a diagnosis of d-TGA, transposition of the great arteries, in Kurdistan. He had a catheterization done there using a balloon to open a small hole in his heart which helped the oxygenated blood to more easily flow around his body, keeping him as safe as possible until he had reached us here in Israel.

Please pray for a good outcome for Mohammed in surgery, and for his mother to settle in and feel at home here.
