1.5 year-old Muhammad Zaim who lives in the Harbenus region in the rural area of Idlib, Syria, was suffering from Ileus or bowel paralysis. He received surgery with the support of IHH.
IHH Syrian Operations Healthcare Department Representative Dr. Ibrahim Tlass said that baby Muhammad has begun to recover from the operation.
Tlass explained, “As it was possible to treat bowel paralysis in Syria, we transported Muhammad to the hospital immediately. After conducting the necessary procedures, we waited for a while so the body could recuperate before surgery. Then the operation was performed in Syria in a sterile environment.”
“We have been monitoring baby Muhammad’s condition closely after the operation. Every day he is making a gradual recovery. We hope he will recover completely very soon.”
IHH has conducted aid operations in various fields including healthcare since the Syrian War began in 2011.
