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.
