Providing short- and long-term assistance to underprivileged populations dealing with financial, and physical and mental health difficulties.
Lev Chash focuses its activities on assisting three main populations: Families in financial need, chronically sick children and their families, and the elderly.
The organization operates the following help centers and projects: Dental clinics, a second-hand furnishing center, food distribution, assistance to pediatric cancer patients and their families, Holocaust survivors’ community club, assistance to the elderly, and many more.
Our door is open to all people in need with no prejudices, thus reducing social and economic gaps in Israeli society.
Lev Chash strongly believes that cooperating with other organizations and institutions leads to maximal success, and as such it operates in full cooperation with Haifa municipally, specifically the welfare office, and other large private- and public-sector organizations; e.g. Elbit Systems Ltd., Electra Group, Baran Group Ltd., Pluristem Therapeutics, Palram Industris, Technion – Israel Institute of Technology, and more.
Lev Chash association depends mainly on its ~80 volunteers, who come on a regular basis. It promotes social values of volunteering, giving and bearing the burden for others; hence it implements social awareness and responsibility. Likewise, it educates towards equality, respect, professionalism and attention to needs.
HOME AWAY FROM HOME – Guesthouse For children with cancer.
Our vision is to build a warm, loving and supportive guesthouse to keep families together during their children’s illness and hospitalization, providing a homey environment to help in the healing process.
The guesthouse, which will be situated only a few minutes’ walk from Rambam Health Care Campus in Haifa, will accommodate children who are undergoing intensive day care treatment for cancer and their parents. The guesthouse will function as a recuperating center and temporary lodgings for those living far from the medical center, thereby alleviating their need for long-distance transportation while they are hurting and suffering. It will also accommodate families of children who are undergoing long-term medical treatment, allowing them a break from the long days and nights in the hospital, and assisting those faced with long and tiring travels.
Our goal is to provide a home away from home, where families can sleep, eat and enjoy supportive activities, helping them to retain and regain their strength and endurance for the continued challenging and dedicated care of their children.
The guesthouse will be a state-of-the-art, five-story building, consisting of 15 guestrooms in a refurbished Templers’ building minutes away from RHC center in Haifa. All rooms will be designed to provide a separate and quiet living quarter that allows guests their own space in which to spend their time.
The guesthouse will be run by a professional staff of salaried employees, along with volunteers who will contribute their time and energy to provide services such as social activities and extracurricular enrichment.
