Hanaa Daoud has asthma and pulmonary fibrosis, which requires her to rely on a breathing machine to survive. However, the Israel-Palestine conflict has hindered her access to proper treatment. She can only leave her house with her breathing device, and due to the lack of electricity in Gaza, she faces uncertainty when her battery runs out.
