Noise in the hallways, babies crying, low voices, dozens of small patients or adult women awaiting examination. But there is a tense silence in the room where several babies are battling for life in incubators. Newborns are battling common jaundice or other diseases, but many have been struggling for life since birth, and Al Ekha Hospital is where they will stay now how a while. Like for little Salam.
