A top Palestinian official known only as "M" just donated tens of thousands of shekels to an Israeli hospital where he'd been hospitalized earlier and his life was saved. But it wasn't just pay-back for saving his life. He was struck by how the hospital staff treated Palestinians and Israelis with equal attention, compassion and diligence. He was also moved by the number of patients who were children from Gaza and the West Bank.
"When I arrived at Rambam Hospital, I saw a medical team that treats its patients with dedication," he said, "but I also saw suffering children, Israelis, Syrians, and children from other countries, who are being treated at Rambam. Medicine is a bridge between peoples, and my hope is that with the help of this small contribution and others like it in the future, we will all see a better tomorrow."
