Six-year-old Muhi has an infectious laugh and loves to imitate his grandfather, Abu Naim. The boy, who was born the son of a Hamas activist in Gaza, has spent his whole life in an Israeli hospital. He has a rare autoimmune disease. When he was two his hands and feet had to be amputated. In Gaza he would be condemned to die, because healthcare is in a desolate state there. On the other side of the border he can get treatment, but the price is high.
