Jewish nurse breastfeeds Palestinian baby after his mother got injured in car crash

Motherhood is a powerful natural instinct of women. This heartwarming image gives one hope for humanity and it will move you to the core of your being.

Ula Ostrowski-Zak, a Jewish nurse, has won hearts around the world after she was pictured breastfeeding a Palestinian boy, whose mother was seriously injured and father died in a car crash in Ein Kerem, in central Israel.

She tried for seven hours to get nine-month-old Yaman Abu Ramila to take milk from a bottle before deciding to feed him herself.

“His aunts were surprised that a Jew agreed to breastfeed him, but I told them that any mother would do it,” she said. “I fed him five times. His aunts embraced me and thanked me. They were really surprised.”

The young boy was taken to Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital following the crash in an armored vehicle. Amazingly, thousands more offers to feed the young boy came flooding in after Ostrowski-Zak posted a call for new moms, online.

“Within two hours I received more than a thousand likes and responses from women who volunteered to help, women who were willing to travel even from Haifa (in northern Israel) to breastfeed him. In between, I continued to try to bottle feed the baby but without success,” she said.

With Yaman’s mother still seriously ill, his aunts are expected to care for him when he is discharged from hospital soon. One unnamed aunt said she would be able to make arrangements for the boy to be breastfed when she got home.
