Residents of Em Hamoshavot Neighborhood
In cooperation with Friends of Schneider Children’s, Residents of the Em Hamoshavot neighborhood in Petach Tikva visited children in the Hemato-Oncology Department at Schneider Children’s and distributed i-pads. The electronic devices were purchased with funds raised to benefit hospitalized children at an end-of-the-year party in Em Hamoshavot.
David Kariv, a representative of the Em Hamoshavot residents, said that“the end-of-the-year party is part of our community activities. From the start, we wanted to donate the proceeds from the event to a worthy cause and I was pleased that we could make a donation to benefit hospitalized children.. Schneider Children’s was a natural choice, and I hope that the efforts on behalf of the hospital will expand so that we can continue our good deeds in the future. Mor Barak Rivlin, CEO of Friends of Schneider Children’s, noted that “the visit was very moving. This was an opening shot in the collaboration forged between the Em Hamoshavot residents and Schneider Children’s under the banner “Children for Children”. This year we plan many joint events with the objective of linking the children of Petach Tikva with hospitalized children.”
