Fleeing from the carnage of her country’s civil war, a Syrian mother overcame her fears about Israel and brought her severely ill 18-month-old baby boy to Hadassah Hospital Ein Kerem, where its heart specialists saved her son’s life.

As Israel’s Channel 12 reported, “While pregnant, with a little girl left behind, she fled the civil war in Syria and wandered from one hospital to the next, until she reached Jordan. But even there the doctors couldn’t save her sick son. The salvation actually came from Hadassah Ein Kerem in Jerusalem. Last week the grueling journey ended with exaltation.”
