Happiness in the hospital


Support for children and parents

At most hospitals around Israel, Zichron Menachem gives children receiving cancer treatment a break from pain and boredom. A regular feature on the children’s wards, we give the kids something to look forward to, including exciting activities, snack carts with ice cream sundaes and sushi, and much-needed personal attention. Zichron Menachem is one of the top three most-requested programmes for National Service recruits who spend much of their time with kids in hospital.

Zichron Menachem also manages the blood components bank at Jerusalem’s Hadassah Hospital.

    Helping hands
    Our services depend on scores of dedicated volunteers. From running errands for parents to helping worried children laugh, our helpers are at the heart of our operation supporting parents and children during treatment.

    Sharing the load
    The burden that rests on the shoulders of parents with a sick child is impossible to overstate. Zichron Menachem is there to help share the weight. We send volunteers to hospital to stay with their child while they go home for much-needed rest and to care for their other kids. We also send volunteers to their homes help with the myriad of tasks that often get neglected while they are busy in hospital.
  • Kids activities

    Keeping busy
    In hospital and away from the usual routine, kids face boredom and anxiety. Zichron Menachem brings a bit of fun to an otherwise difficult time. Volunteers run activities throughout the day, play with children individually, and make sure that kids minds and bodies are kept active.
  • Treats and sweets

    Treats and sweets

    Delicious delights
    Zichron Menachem’s food carts bring kids ice cream, sushi and other delights while they are in hospital. These do more than raise the spirit. Kids who often have trouble eating and getting the nourishment they need excitedly dig-in to the treats on the trolly.
  • Sponsored rides

    Making transport easy
    Parents often need to make regular trips to the hospital to either visit kids or bring them for treatment. We help make these journeys easier by providing rides in taxis. Paying attention to these small details means that parents have more time to spend taking care of their families rather than taking complicated journeys on public transit.
  • Blood bank

    Blood components bank

    Organising donations
    Zichron Menachem manages the blood products bank at Hadassah Hospital. We ensure there are always enough blood products to meet patient’s needs. When supplies run short, we have a list of volunteers we can call on to come at a moment’s notice. This service saves the lives.

"The volunteers of ZM came with such a joy of life, and they sent me home. 'Go refresh yourself, sleep, take a shower. Come back whenever you want. We're here with your daughter, you have nothing to worry about.'"
