Passover is a national holiday and celebration in Israel that commemorates freedom from slavery. Although it is impossible to compare the suffering of the Jews under Pharaoh to the suffering of the poor and forgotten in the nation of Israel today, many impoverished families do not have enough food in their pantry to celebrate the Passover holiday. There are more than 1.5 million people in Israel who live beneath the poverty level, and over half of those are children. Through the generosity of your gifts, The Joshua Fund provided many families with a meal just in time for the Passover holiday.
The Joshua Fund continues to bring Iraqi children to Israel for life-saving heart surgery. One recent example was Aram, an 18-month-old boy. Please pray for this dear little child and his family. Aram was petrified of the hospital when he first arrived. He screamed and cried during the admittance procedures. Aram was then called to have his surgery ahead of other children only three days after arriving. This was unusual, and meant that his heart condition was so bad that the doctors wanted to proceed immediately. His mother, Shownim, was understandably concerned for her son.
