A rare olive branch grows in the West Bank

A Palestinian boy’s family donates organs to Israeli kids.

His organs helped save the lives of six patients. His heart was given to a 12-year-old girl; his liver was divided in two and given to two patients, a six-month old baby and a 56-year-old woman; his kidneys were given to a 5-year-old boy and his lungs were given to a 5-year-old boy and a 4-year-old girl, Israel Radio reported.

It is hard, in these times of great animosity, to find the strength that this family had. Lets hope that this olive branch grows to shadow the vines of hatred, sown by conflict.
