Midya arrived in Israel yesterday along with her mother and a group of Kurdish families also requiring medical help for their children.
Midya is a one year and eight month old girl from Iraqi Kurdistan. She was diagnosed with a heart condition called VSD, which means she has a hole in the lower chambers of her heart. She has not had any surgical intervention for her whole life, and now she has developed pulmonary hypertension. We hope that the surgeons in Israel are able to operate on her.
Please pray for Midya, she is so sweet but also a little timid! I hope that she learns to love Israel, the people of our community, and to feel at home here for the duration of her stay.
