COVID: After isolation kids with cancer get a break with Zichron Menachem

Zichron Menachem brought 80 children sick with cancer together for three days of outdoor fun earlier this week. The children have been in isolation for more than a year because of the coronavirus pandemic, which the organization says is being transported back and forth between their homes and hospitals. “Cancer patients have suffered a lot from the coronavirus pandemic, far more than the general population,” said Chaim. Ehrenthal, chairman and founder of the organization. “The threat of the coronavirus was much more serious for them and the pressure they and their families experienced was extraordinary.” The kids will stay near Lake Kinneret and participate in activities such as jeep tours and helicopter tours during the day. “The isolation was necessary, of course, but very hard. We are talking about children and young people who have not left their home at all, sometimes their siblings also stayed at home to keep them healthy. Today is the first time for many of them to go to an activity that is fun and in the open air. “To keep the children safe, all employees and participants have been tested for the corona virus and the entire staff has been vaccinated in recent months.” [on the trip] they are not sick children, here they are normal children like everyone else, “said Ehrenthal.” Here they are right. One of the first things they do when they get on the bus is take off their wig and head covering. Here otherwise is normal. Nobody gets strange looks or questions. It’s the perfect distraction. “We also help their families to breathe easily. These are families who have been concerned with only one thing for a year: protecting their sick child. Now the families can rest for three days, invest in their other children and in their relationships.”
