STATISTICS

Over 10,000 Palestinian children received medical treatment in Israeli hospitals that was unavailable in the Palestinian Authority.

Saving Children

 
Project Aim

This humanitarian project treats Palestinian babies and children in Israeli hospitals for complex medical procedures and diagnoses in cases where such services are unavailable in the Palestinian Authority. The Palestinian population is very young - 50% is under the age of 15 - which places high demand and great pressure on the pediatric capacities of the Palestinian healthcare system.

How it Works

In partnership with the Palestinian pediatric community, since 2003 this project has facilitated the referral of Palestinian babies and children to Israeli hospitals for complex investigations, diagnoses, and surgical procedures. Over 1,500 referrals are received annually, resulting in major procedures such as cardiac surgery, bone marrow transplants, cochlear implantants, neurosurgery, cancer treatment and more. The project brings together the best in the Israeli and Palestinian civil societies, incorporating a network of over 60 Palestinian and Israeli doctors, referring, treating and monitoring the children. Furthermore, the project creates connections between parents from both sides, Palestinian and Israeli, who are bound by the common purpose and hope of seeing their children recover from illness.
