Deqa Hassan Amed is five years old with a sick heart. Her mother noticed her when she was five months old. She thought that time would heal her daughter's ailments but unfortunately the health condition of the girl deteriorated as time went by. Last week she took her to Dufle Polyclinic in Mogadishu run by a well respected heart specialist Dr. Osman Mohamoud Dufle who is also Secretary of State for Health of the de facto Somali government. The doctor recommended Deqa to be evacuated to another country to allow the girl obtain treatment at an advanced medical facility. Deqa's parents have little hope of getting any assistance for their girl but they are praying for God to help them find a sponsor in abroad to get the necessary medical attention for their beloved daughter. And Deqa herself, weak and somewhat malnourished, is expecting the worst to happen. And most serious of all is the fact that a child of that age knowing and worrying about death.

The heart
That conical organ
The circulator
The seat of love

It is the source of joy
But for little Deqa
It is the seat of pain
At the tender age of five
She lives with an ailing heart
A hole is dug deep in hear heart

Deqa is suffering from Congenital Cardiopathy
Doctors recommended medical evacuation
But a big economic hurdle lies on the way
Poverty denies Deqas parents to save their daughter
Is there a way we can find a sponsor for this poor child?
Please direct us to where we can get some help
Thanks for reading this poem

There are so many children who need medical help and are not able to get it, and each one is loved by someone especially, and collectively by those who love children. I am so glad Victor has a site to contact. I keep Deqa and the little ones of the world in my prayers at all times. Peace. Joyce

Oh, Abdi-Noor,

What a precious plea for the heart (and health) of a child! I will add little Deqa to my prayer list, to find the sponsors and medical treatment necessary for her recovery. Well done, Abdi-Noor, you have the heart of an angel!

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
