An insight into the Civil Administration’s work for ill Palestinian children

The Health Department of the Civil Administration regularly takes Palestinian children hospitalized in Israel to fun trips all around the country.

This week, a young Palestinian boy suffering from leukaemia will go on a five-day trip to Tiberias, Nazareth and other places he asked to see.

Originally from Ramallah, the young boy underwent a bone marrow transplant and is still receiving palliative care at Hadassah Hospital in Jerusalem, where he has been treated for the past year.

His mother and brother will accompany him on the trip, for which the Civil Administration made all necessary arrangements.

The Civil Administration is dedicated to helping Palestinian patients being treated in Israel as much as possible, not only medically but also in terms of general welfare.
In April, a group of Palestinian children treated at Schneider and Shaare Zedek Hospitals travelled to Mount Hermon alongside Israeli children to enjoy the snow and to ski.
