On December 5 of last year, on an overnight Qatar Airways flight from Qatar to Uganda, a Ugandan woman traveling alone went into preterm labor.

Canadian doctor Aisha Khatib, who happened to be on the same flight, helped the passenger deliver her first child, a baby girl.

The woman decided to name the baby Miracle Aisha — middle name in honor of the doctor.

Dr. Khatib was so touched that she gifted mom and baby with her own gold necklace, which featured the name “Aisha” written in Arabic.
