Fighting Childhood Cancer, Healing Little Lives

#PCRFfightsCancer

The holiday season is a special time of year for many of us, but for hundreds of families in the West Bank with children battling cancer while living under military occupation, ensuring their access to adequate care and services is our humanitarian duty.

Your tax-deductible donation will ensure that children with cancer in Palestine have access to care and services that are otherwise not available to them.  We hope you will be generous and support this campaign.

Meet Our Patients

Each Palestinian child in our department has a face and a name. They are the reason that thousands of people all over the world have given us to support to build this this department and to continue to ensure they get all of the medical and social support they need to recover from this terrible disease.

While this center is a big step to toward ensuring that children who are battling cancer in Palestine have a place to receive treatment, our work is not yet done.

Department Services

The PCRF is one of the few NGOs in Palestine that keeps a permanent presence in a public hospital to ensure that medical and psychosocial support for patients continue unabated.

Parties

While children are receiving treatment, the PCRF sponsors birthday, eid, and holiday parties to help support their psychological, emotional and mental needs.

Red Nose Clowns

PCRF supports bringing in “Red Nose Clowns” to the department bi-weekly to bring smiles and happiness to our patients, helping them to cope with their treatment.

Tutoring

We bring tutors to ensure that children who are undergoing long-term care do not fall behind in school.  This also helps them to cope with their stressful treatment.

Medical Care
Medical Care

Children with cancer need medical care and tests which they often cannot afford. PCRF sponsors tests to ensure proper diagnoses and care to ensure full recovery of their disease.

Summer Camps at The Huda Al Masri Healing Garden

In April of 2015, the PCRF opened the Huda Al Masri Healing Garden at Beit Jala hospital, a playground and garden that allows our patients to relax during their difficult treatment in the hospital. The garden, named after our former head social worker who passed away from leukemia in July 2009, gives our patients a loving and fun atmosphere and is the only garden within any hospital in Palestine of its kind.

Huda al Masri (1962 - 2009)

Huda Al Masri was one of the founders of the PCRF and as our head social worker from 1993 until her tragic death from leukemia in 2009, helped to build the organization. Huda was known by everyone who met her as a loving mother, devoted wife, hard-working social worker, and exemplary leader whose vision and dedication to serving her people in Palestine enabled the PCRF to grow into one of the most respected and established non-profits in the Middle East.

Please help us as the #PCRFFightsCancer this holiday season by donating to this campaign, so children battling cancer in Palestine have a chance to receive the best treatments possible.
