Big-Bullet-SQR.gif Children coping with cancer are forced to miss many days of school and may therefore "fall behind". Falling behind in their schoolwork makes it extremely difficult for them to function during the interval between their treatments and recovery. This can  cause great frustration and can deliver a severe blow to the child's self-image and self-esteem.


Big-Bullet-SQR.gif These young patients undergo many treatments and are hospitalized for prolonged periods, remaining at home due to their need for isolation to prevent the transmission of infection that could endanger their lives.


Big-Bullet-SQR.gif ICA has set up a unique project called "The Hope for Life" project specifically tailored to these children's needs.

bul3 ICA invests many means in this project which assigns qualified teachers or students to school-age children, from kindergarten through high school.  These specially trained teachers tutor these children and assist them in catching up with their schoolwork.


bul3 The tutor meets with the child for 6 to 10 hours a week in the child's home and remains in close contact with the child's teachers, making sure that the child completes all missed schoolwork.

 

bul3 The relationship with the tutor has an extremely positive influence on the child, his family, and the relationship he has with his peers. In addition to assisting the child with his schoolwork, the tutor serves as an "older brother" and close friend, with whom the child can discuss everything and confide in freely.

bul3 Mrs. Miri Ziv, ICA Director General, stated that: "Our investment in the kids' future gives them and their parents the hope and strength to persevere in their complicated battle with the illness".

 

bul3 The "Hope for Life" project provides assistance to hundreds of child cancer patients throughout the country.
