A top Palestinian Authority official has donated tens of thousands of shekels to the Rambam Medical Center in Israel’s northern city of Haifa, according to a press release published by the hospital on Sunday.
The official, who has chosen to remain anonymous, was treated for cancer at the hospital several months ago and, during his time there, he met several sick children, Arabs and Jews, being treated for various illnesses. The donor was inspired to make a gracious contribution that will be used to improve conditions for sick children being treated at the hospital.
The money he gave will be used to build a special recovery room for sick children who have undergone major surgery and cancer treatment.
“When I came to Rambam I saw a medical staff that treats Palestinian children, Israelis, Syrians and children from other countries that are receiving treatment there and need all the help they can get,” the donor said. “I have decided to make this donation as an act of humanity and a sign of solidarity.” Read more at i24.
