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.
