Yehia and his parents might want to think of never returning to their home in case they all become targets. Leave it to a holocaust survivor to give her heart and a hand up to someone in need. May they all live in peace and light. Uplifting story.

"Save a Child’s Heart, whose $3.5 million annual budget is covered mostly by private Jewish donors, has saved the lives of over 4,000 children."

Wonderful outreach on social media to save that child's life. Well done by All.

Nice to see Israel saving the life of a child. Now how about extending such compassion towards the Palestinians?

Freya FYI - Save a Child Heart (Holon, Israel) between 1996 - 2014 - The Number of Children Treated (includes both surgeries and catheterizations) 3465 of which 1705 were Palestinian. You should visit Hadassah Hospital in Jerusalem and you will find Palestinian patients, doctors, and nurses working side by side with their Jewish colleagues. You should visit the Erez Crossing (the border between Gaza and Israel) and see the Palestinians coming to Israel for medical care. To show Palestinian compassion, one woman from Gaza, who was being treated for severe burns she got while cooking, had a suicide bomb strapped to her body to blow up the medical staff who were treating her over the months. Luckily the soldiers at the crossing detected it before she entered Israel.

no other country would dream of saving the lives of citizens of those nations who refuse all diplomatic relations.
