Assisting Families in Need
When a child is diagnosed with cancer, the balance of the family changes. Usually, one of the parents must leave their job in order to devote themselves to the child during treatments. The other parent continues working while committed to care for the siblings and maintain their daily needs and health.
When the income becomes smaller than the growing expenses, many families face difficulties in their financial and even emotional condition. Hayim Association assists families in financial crisis in order to allow the parents to continue their daily routine along with the special needs and expenses of treating their child, by:
- Providing direct financial aid
- Providing babysitting services
- Purchasing life saving medicine (which is not covered by insurance)
- Providing specific assistance to medical needs such as purchasing a hospital bed, oxygen tanks, hearing aids, special glasses and more.
