You may remember our dispatch from Palestine on COVID-19 from last spring with Mohammed Samara, the kind and heroic nurse from Nablus. We're sad to hear that Mohammed is now sick with COVID-19. This is a photo of himself he sent to us yesterday.
At the time we did a dispatch with Mohammed in April, he had this to say: "This virus will either kill you, or you will survive. And if you want to survive, you need to think about what you need to do to survive. It’s not just going out and buying tons of groceries or toilet paper... We really need to think about the people we care about, and care for them."
We are sending all our love to Mohammed and his family, and our wishes for a speedy recovery. We know you will survive, because you bring so much love, care and solidarity into this world.
