About the Project
“When people ask me how I want to be remembered, I tell them: ‘As someone who has saved the life of a child.' I can't think of anything more noble.” – Shimon Peres
The Peres Center treats Palestinian and Syrian children in hospitals throughout Israel, providing them with complex and often life-saving medical treatment. Every month, the Peres Center handles dozens of requests, and since the launch of the program in 2003, 12,500 children have been treated. Beyond the vital humanitarian aspect of saving the lives of children in need, this program creates a unique meeting point between families, medical teams, and hospitals - building bridges of hope and peace.
