“Chen Lachaim” was founded to entertain and assist the children while hospitalized in “Tel – Hashomer” and “Ichilov” hospitals – in various divisions with personal escort by volunteers while they go through the rigorous hospitalization and revivification process.
“Chen Lachaim” Targets replacing the enormous pain with a huge smile with diverse activities like toy giveaway, social games, candy, birthday parties, fun days, dream achievement, nature activities, homework help and more…
A child’s pain is the worst pain anyone knows so the volunteers act day by day with the power of the saying in mind: “Their smile is our joy”
It is hard to describe the state of the children while suffering rigorous examinations and treatments, declined mental state. Each year we take out children to go through “live your dream” with the goal of extinguishing the pain even for a little while and give them back moments of joy to cherish at rough times, and give them more force to continue fighting for their lives.
All this is thanks to you.
Join us and together we “Switch the pain with a big smile”.
Thanks in advance,

Financial aid for the children’s families

Lifts from homes to hospitals for treatment

Live your dream – for terminal and cancer children

Saturday Eve Kits
