Zichron Menachem aspires to service the collective needs of young cancer patients and their families. No need is too big or too small. By Zichron Menachem attending to these needs, families are able to survive in a new, easier reality.
A full transportation network is one aspect of this giant picture.
Siblings of cancer patients stream to the Day Center from all Jerusalem neighborhoods and adjacent cities including Beit Shemesh, Modi’in, Kiryat Sefer, Beitar Illit, Gush Etzion, Ma’ale Adumum, Mizpe Jericho, etc. Parents depend on the Day Center to care for their children, feed them, study with them, and entertain them. But there’s one catch: How do the kids get there?
Zichron Menachem operates six mini-buses to drive children to and from the Day Center.
In addition, we also have a reserve of volunteer drivers who donate their services to transport children one way to or from the Center. This allows us to deal with overcrowding on busses and shorten the routes of especially long drives that become tiresome for the children and waste precious hours that could be spent enjoying and benefiting from support at the Day Center.
