The donor organ was handed over to the family of a Jewish baby, who had just recently died from an incurable disease, the newspaper writes.NEWS".

Musa Asakra was born in a Ramallah hospital. From the first days of his life, he suffered from benign neoplasms (tumors) that interfered with normal cardiac activity. Since the Palestinian doctors were not ready to help the child, the family turned to Israel for help. The baby was examined by Sheba doctors, clarified the diagnosis and gave recommendations to pediatric cardiologists from Ramallah on how to continue the treatment.

About three weeks ago, the child's condition began to deteriorate sharply. The boy was rushed from the Ramallah hospital to Sheba.

“The child was admitted to us in an extremely serious condition. He underwent a complex operation, after which the baby was connected to life support devices. However, the condition continued to remain critical. It was clear to us that only a heart transplant could save a baby, ”said Dr. David Meshali, head of the International Center for the Treatment of Congenital Heart Diseases at Sheba Hospital.

As in all such cases, the hope of saving one person was associated with the tragedy of another family. At that moment, when Palestinian parents prayed for a miracle, a call came from Jewish parents who, having lost their 18-month-old son, expressed willingness to donate his organs to save other lives.

At Sheba Hospital, after making sure the donor heart was not suitable for any Israeli patient in need of a transplant, the parents of the Jewish boy were called to ask if they would agree to donate an organ to a Palestinian child. They answered in the affirmative.

Transplantation was performed immediately, the operation lasted a long time and was extremely difficult. Doctors are optimistic about the child's recovery.

“The transplant was the only and last chance to save the child's life,” Meshali said. He also clarified that this is the first time that a Jewish heart has been transplanted to a Palestinian.

The parents of a Palestinian child expressed gratitude to the parents of a boy whose heart saved their son. They want to visit them in order to thank them personally and share their grief over the loss of a child.
