Hayim Association is dedicated to improving the lives of children suffering from cancer. The Hayim Association was established in 1984 by parents of children with cancer, with the aim of raising funds for the treatment of these children.
The Association’s achievements include:
- Giving financial assistance to families of patients, including organising day trips and providing play rooms, class rooms and tutoring in 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
- Funding medical research, medical equipment and positions in the oncology department of various hospitals;
The JWA Helps Saving Lives
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.
In the past:
With our donations the Schneider hospital purchased equipment that allows the efficient preventment and treatment of complications following bone marrow transplantation.
Below please read a letter from Prof. Yaniv, the Chairman of the Pediatric Hematology Oncology Division of Schneider Children’s Medical Center.
Dear JWA members,
I am honoured to be able to express our gratitude and appreciation to all the donors who support the Hayim association through the project of JWA of Hong Kong.
The high standards of medical excellence, professionalism, accomplishments and medical breakthroughs have propelled the treatment of children with cancer forward at such a pace, that over 80% of children are expected to be cured. Nevertheless, in order to achieve this goal and face the challenges, we need your support that will enable us to improve our patient’s care and quality of life.
I would be happy to welcome every one of you, during your next visit to Israel, and show you in person what you have been supporting at our center. I am sure this can be a life changing experience.
On behalf of our young patients and the whole team
Prof. Isaac Yaniv M.D.
Chairman, The Rina Zaizov Pediatric Hematology Oncology Division
Schneider Children’s Medical Center of Israel
