The Circle of Life

Amin ShabanIt was only a few short months ago that there was a terror attack in Tel Aviv. This shocking and devastating event took the lives of three people, two of whom were shot at a bar, and a taxi driver who was killed when the terrorist fled.

This week, the widow of Amin Shaban, the taxi driver, arrived to Assaf Harofeh Medical Center, where she gave birth to their son. This beautiful baby boy was born healthy, weighing just under 7 pounds.

FamilyAmin’s widow, Heba Jabhat, shared that for her, “Life must go on. I have two babies at home and we cannot surrender to terrorism. It is with joy and sadness that we welcome this new baby into our lives; but I am certain that Amin would want me to raise his two children with only happiness in their lives. I feel that Amin is watching me from above.”

Heba further expressed her gratitude to Assaf Harofeh for the care and support that she received both throughout her pregnancy and during her delivery. She said, “The medical team at Assaf Harofeh was extraordinary; they stayed with me the entire time, and cared for me exceptionally.”

Mother and Baby

The loss of one life is also the welcoming of a new life. CHW congratulates Heba and her family on the birth of their bundle of joy and wish them only the best! CHW is proud to support Assaf Harofeh and the remarkable work it does!
