Soroka saves two Gaza children in one week By Judy Siegel-Itzkovich

Twice in one week, humanitarian gestures at Soroka Medical Center in Beersheba have saved Palestinian children from Gaza who have no medical insurance.

A seven-year-old girl suffered second- and third-degree burns over a third of her body after she was left alone at home and a large pot of boiling water overturned on her.

Her grandfather, who worked for many years as a building contractor in Israel, thanked the hospital and said that without its care, she would had suffered from great pain and died.

A 22-month-old boy was brought to the hospital with a severe bacterial infection.

Both were treated at Soroka’s pediatric intensive care unit and are in stable condition.
