Comforting Zion: Hospitalized Children

This #Giving Tuesday and in time for Hanukkah, together we can bless hospitalized Jewish and Arab Israeli children suffering from painful injury or disease. Most of these precious little ones are being treated for cancer or are battling other serious, degenerative diseases. On #Giving Tuesday November 28, and for a week thereafter, you can help make a difference in their lives in a special way.

Schneider Children’s Hospital is a leading Israeli children’s facility for pediatric oncology and other life threatening conditions. While medical care there is excellent, hospital directors told us that recreational activities for the patients are sorely lacking. Therefore, at their suggestion, we are purchasing 2 days of fun activities (mostly crafts and cooking) to be conducted by professionals who are licensed to serve in children’s hospitals. We are told such activities greatly encourage the patients and their families. This gift of joy can also significantly help in the healing process.

We will personally visit the hospital to deliver the funds the first day of Hanukkah, December 12. At that time we’ll also be able to pray for and tenderly share God’s love with the children during the sponsored activities.

PLEASE NOTE: We will need to receive donations for this project not later than December 8, whether via online payment or postal mailed check.

The cost of two days of professionally conducted activities (including supplies) totals slightly over US $2,000. As always, 100 percent of all funds we receive would be given to the recipient, in this case, the hospital. Any excess donations we receive will be used to purchase toys, stuffed animals and other material goods for these precious ones needing comfort in Zion.

Donations can be sent to Light of Zion, a tax deductible 501c3 organization in the US, by clicking the donate button at the top of this page. You will be given information for online contributions or US postal check mailings. Be sure to specify that your donation (or specific portion thereof) is for “Sick Children”. Remember, our office must receive all contributions for this project by December 8, whether online or via postal mailed check.

On behalf of these suffering children, we most sincerely thank you with hearts of gratitude and love!
