Dozens of young cancer patients and their families were airlifted to Arosa in Swizterland by Ezra Lemarpeh, who took care of the flights, hotel stays, medical staff, and access to all the attractions in the area. The children enjoyed a full week of unforgettable experiences in the snow-covered mountains – by ski and cable-car. The organization also provided special suitcases packed with surprises, snow-shoes, scarves, mittens, and plenty of candy...
The Ezra LeMarpeh Association, founded by Rabbi A. E. Firer, provides assistance to the sick and needy.
This operation is carried out every winter, and is made possible by the cooperation of the hotel managers who provide warmhearted accommodation free of charge, and take care of every little detail to help the children leave the hospital behind, even for a short while.
