Noam Mazal Ben-David, a 27-year-old survivor of the Nova Festival massacre carried out by Hamas terrorists, was admitted to Laniado Hospital in Netanya on that fateful day, October 7th. After spending nearly a month at Laniado, just berore being released, she was eager to share her story with the world. Francesca Librae, a freelance journalist originally from Manchester but now residing in New Orleans, is a close friend of the Laniado UK team. She conducted an interview with Noam over Zoom and was deeply moved to tears by her story. 

Speaking from her hospital bed, Noam expressed her gratitude: "Thank G-d I was brought here to Laniado because they have treated me like a princess. The people here are incredibly kind and beautiful. I received the best possible care. People even came in with plates of food, and some would sing and bring guitars and drums. It's truly beautiful."

Noam's story was initially featured in the Sunday Express last week, but due to its remarkable nature, it has garnered attention from news outlets worldwide. Her story has been covered by numerous UK news outlets including The Times, the Daily Mail, The Mirror, The Daily Star, and The Sun. Additionally, it has been picked up by publications in Israel, Canada, the USA, Germany, Italy, Poland, Slovakia, Indonesia, India, and many more countries across the world.
