The Israel Corporation and its subsidiary, Israel Chemicals, have been supporting Schneider Children's Medical Center for several years. Each year, the two companies direct contributions towards the Oncology Department, the Day Care Clinic, the Gastroenterology Institute and the Catheterization Unit. Recently, Variety Israel joined their efforts, and following their generous donation, an educational and activity room was established in the Oncology Department. The new room is well-equipped and outfitted with the latest technologies so that hospitalized children can enjoy a pleasant and rewarding study environment.
The Educational and Activity Room in the Oncology Department is crucial for the rehabilitation of the sick child and his eventual return to normal life. The study curriculum is individually tailored to each child's emotional state and condition of health, anticipated length of hospitalization and scholastic needs. The Israel Corporation and Variety Israel have also continued to support educational activities in the Oncology Department through donations earmarked for special projects such as medical clowns, art workshops and enrichment programs.
