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 transplantations, cochlear implantations, brain and 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 a common purpose and hope of seeing their children recover from illness.
