We need your support to bring more smiles into the Huda Al Masri Pediatric Cancer Department, in Beit Jala, by making a donation towards this great initiative. We all understand that hospital stays can be challenging as it is a foreign environment that takes you away from your home comforts and family, so, we are partnering with a local restaurant, SajWich, to provide daily meals and bring a sense of ‘home’ to kids whilst receiving treatment.
SajWich is based in the same town as the department and has already started to provide meals to the kids but we want to sustain their work through donors from all over, and continue to support the great work of the staff and volunteers, who work tirelessly to provide daily care, treatment and entertainment for the kids. We want to treat the kids to ‘out of hospital’ food experiences, every day, so join us to make this happen J
To bring some context, the Huda Al Masri Pediatric Cancer Department is the first and only public pediatric cancer department in Palestine and was opened in April 2013 to commemorate the passing of Huda Al Masri, in 2009, from Leukemia. Huda Al Masri was a founding member to the PCRF and was the head social worker, helping to care for thousands of children from the region. The department now serves children from all over Palestine with critical treatment and care, with a dedicated staff and volunteer base.
The PCRF is a legally-registered non-political, non-profit, 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization established in 1991 by concerned people to address the medical and humanitarian needs of Palestinian and Arab youths in the Middle East. We have provided thousands of children life-saving care based on their need, not on religion, gender, nationality or sect.
The main objective of the PCRF is to identify and treat every child in the Middle East in need of specialized surgery not available to them locally. We locate, sponsor and run international, volunteer medical missions to the Middle East, in additional to locating free medical care abroad for children who cannot be adequately treated in the Middle East. The PCRF is the main organization regularly sending injured and sick Arab children to North and South America, the Middle East and Europe for free care that is not available to them there. Since 1991 over 1,000 children have been abroad for millions of dollars of donated care, and over 10,000 have had complex surgery by our visiting medical missions to the region. The PCRF has been awarded the top 4-star rating by Charity Navigator for fiscal management, while being able to treat more kids than any other charity in the Middle East.
