Israel Performs Heart Surgery on 17-Month-old Yazidi Baby for Family Escaping Islamic Persecution in Iraq

While Wisam recovers from heart surgery in Israel, his father’s concern turns to his Yazidi family in northern Iraq.


For Baby Wisam, a 17-month-old Yazidi child, Israel is the place that saved his life, even as ISIS threatened his family in northern Iraq.

The toddler has been in Israel since June with his father, where he has undergone heart surgery through the Save a Child’s Heart Foundation. The two arrived from northern Iraq, where ISIS forces are trying to eliminate the Yazidi minority.

Wisam was invited to Israel for treatment at the Wolfson Medical Center in Tel Aviv. In June, he and his father, Abu Wisam, left their home town of Sinjar to head to Israel for treatment.

The two spent the summer in Israel prior to Wisam’s surgery and were caught up in the Gaza conflict – running for shelter when the sirens blared.

However, Abu Wisam’s concern is now focused on the family he left behind, including his wife and new-born twins, who are among the 200,000 Yazidi families who fled to Mount Sinjar to escape ISIS forces.

The Yazidis, followers of an ancient religion derived from Zoroastrianism, are spread over northern Iraq and are part of the country’s Kurdish minority.

Islamic State militants have killed at least 500 members of Iraq’s Yazidi ethnic minority during their offensive in the north, and buried alive some of their victims, including women and children. Some 300 women have been abducted as slaves.

Abu Wisam is desperately waiting to hear from his family, even as he cares Wisam, who is in recovery from his seven-hour surgery performed by heart surgeon Dr. Lior Sasson earlier this week.

Save a Child’s Heart says it is dedicated to saving lives of children, regardless of race, religion, gender, nationality or financial status.

The organization and Wolfson Medical Center together set up a clinic dedicated to Palestinian children from the West Bank and Gaza who arrive for check-ups or admitted for heart surgery.

Children from Gaza were this week set to return to the clinic for the first time in three weeks.

Here are just a few of the children from around the world that are in Israel this week, having their lives heart at a time:

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin
