Spotlight on a JWA Beneficiary
Beneficiary of the Month - Hayim Association
The Hayim Association is a charity set up in Israel to care for children and their families affected by cancer. It was founded in 1984 by the parents of children with cancer to raise funds for the treatment of these children. Support is given to all children without distinction of race, nationality or political conviction.
The association's achievements include:
Operating medical centers throughout Israel;
Funding medical research, medical equipment and positions in the oncology department of various hospitals;
Providing support in the medical wards and at home, working together with the medical staff and social workers. This includes setting up and funding transportation services to and from the hospital for patients; and
Giving financial assistance to families of patients, including organising day trips and providing play rooms, class rooms and tutoring in hospitals.
In 2014-2015, the JWA donated over USD$100,000 that will fund the building of a treatment and recreational room at Schneider Hospital for teenagers who are undergoing cancer treatment as part of a project set up by the Hayim Association.
