Baby Mohammed arrives

Baby Mohammed came urgently to Sheba today from Gaza, for treatment for multiple heart defects. His mother was well up to date on his condition, as she said that her father is a nurse and could help her understand everything.

While it is often that babies from Gaza come in an emergency situation, hearing the story of each individual family makes me realize I couldn’t imagine what they go through. For many guardians, this is the first time they are outside of their city, with a newborn baby that traveled between Erez checkpoint and two ambulances.

But one thing his mother mentioned today, was that she found comfort in the warmth and receptivity of the hospital staff. We are so thankful for Sheba hospital taking on these difficult and urgent cases, and treating every child with compassion and love.

Please pray for this little one as he undergoes treatment.
