Rushed to Israel on second day of life

Newborn Adel was blue at birth and doctors in Gaza quickly discovered that the great arteries of his heart are switched from the natural position, and therefore pumping blue rather than red blood out to the body.

Our Gaza coordinator Amar, and the team at the Sheba Medical Center, acted immediately to bring Adel to Israel, and he reached the Sheba ICU this evening for stabilization and assessment.
