An Israeli hospital near Tel Aviv is partnering with the Living Bread International Church to provide medial care to children in Gaza and the West Bank. The Jerusalem-based church and the Assaf Harofeh Medical Center are calling the project “Rescue the Child.”

Israeli and Palestinian authorities have approved the coordination of the project and the moving of the patients from Gaza and the West Bank into Israel for treatment. “It is such a move of God to reach out in love and compassion to children, who are in a state of hopelessness. Isn’t it like God to team up a Church and a Jewish hospital to show love to the enemies of Israel during this time?” said Karen Dunham, director of Living Bread International Church according to the Christian News Wire. Dunham has been dubbed by news sources as “the Mother Theresa of Israel.”

“I believe that as an Israeli citizen, we always have a right to defend ourselves from any aggression. However, we will always stretch out our hand for peace and show compassion to the suffering of children,” said Aharon Cholow, the director of international resources for Friends of Assaf Harofeh.
