Sanabel is a lovely 12-year-old girl with bright eyes and long, dark hair. She lives in a southern village in Gaza with her parents and three brothers. Her father Omar works in construction and her mother Amal holds down the fort at home.

Like a lot of children born in Gaza with congenital heart defects, her problem was not detected by the hospital where her mother gave birth in December 2000.
