  • Yakub was born at Sharei Tzedek Hospital in Israel and was immediately diagnosed with acute kidney failure. His condition led to several other medic al problems, and he had to undergo several treatments in the hospital. None of his family members were compatible donors. The family which was completely despondent, turned to Dalia Basa, the Health Coordinator of the Civil Administration for help. Three days after Dalia met with the child, a donor was found: a deceased Israeli child whose parents had agreed to donate his kidneys. Immediately, Yakub was transferred to Schneider Medical Center for the life-saving transplant. The operation and medical expenses at Schneider were covered by the CA, at the cost of 200,030 NIS. Since the surgery Yakub has maintained in perfect health.
