Maryia Aman, 6, is seen in her bed in Alin, a rehabilitation hospital in Jerusalem, October 11, 2007. Maryia, who was paralyzed from the neck down after an Israeli attack on militants in Gaza in May 2006 lost her mother, grandmother, uncle and older brother in the attack. The Israeli Defense Ministry covered her medical expenses and sponsored her father and younger brother to live with her at the hospital. Hamdi has 50 seconds to connect and disconnect Maryia from the respirator to move her from the wheelchair to the bed. Photo by Quique Kierszenbaum
