According to the IDF spokesperson, Sanae, an 11-month-old baby who was left homeless by the recent tsunami, arrived at the IDF delegation's medical clinic in Minamisanriku accompanied only by her grandmother.

Sanae, who suffered an inflammation of the eye, was treated at the clinic by Lt. Col. Dr. Amit Assa, a pediatrician, Lt. Col. Orly Weinstein, an eye specialist, and Capt. Galit Bidner, a certified nurse.

Sanae's grandmother received medicine from the team, along with a clear explanation on how to continue future treatment most beneficially, and was invited to return to the clinic after two days. She was also given diapers and toys for Sanae.
