Sick Children on Bikkur Holim (Visiting the Sick)

Sick Children on Bikkur Holim (Visiting the Sick)

Eden isn’t even 16, but has undergone a lot in the past year, when she was diagnosed with cancer a second time, and with a more severe case. But Eden is very brave and will fight till she triumphs. Eden is beloved not only by her family, but also by the medical team, who are astounded by her will to survive. Since she became ill, Eden has been visited by the volunteers of Ezra Lemarpeh, who provide any help and support they can. 

This past weekend, Eden had a surprise visit: when the volunteers arrived at her house. They were accompanied by several sick children from the Tel Hashomer and Hadassah En Kerem hospitals, who know Eden from the wards. The happy group went Kart racing in Talpiot, followed by a festive meal at Café Hillel. They returned home late in the evening, with a satisfied smile brought on by performing the mitzvah of bikkur holim (visiting the sick).
