“The MEDucation Programme helps calm the children as well as helping save resources. Children that have to undergo radiation treatments for one to three months, and were prepared by the hospital school staff, do not require anaesthesia. Children we had once to be kept in hospital because they could not swallow pills, can now go home thanks to the techniques they have learned, and recuperate in a familiar, warm home environment.”
“Unlike other similar schools, the Hadassah School had the foresight of developing the MEDucation programme, seeing the benefit in empowering hospitalised children and their families with knowledge and understanding of medical procedures, thus enabling efficient delivery of treatment by medical staff.
“By making multiculturalism a core value of the school, we have observed how children and their families are welcomed into an environment where their cultural, religious and language needs are catered to in the context of a vibrant and diverse Israeli society.”
With your help and partnership Hadassah UK will be able to support the Hadassah Medical School, bringing new educational projects to sick children, while the wonderful dedicated team at the school do all they can to help them recover and heal.
The children, as well as their families, the medical practitioners, doctors, nurses, hospital staff and future patients all benefit by the positive impact of the Hadassah School. Procedures run more smoothly. Patients respond better and heal more rapidly. Hospital stay times are reduced.
The well-being of Hadassah's young patients transcends all political and religious boundaries. The Multicultural programme creates innovative solutions relevant and accessible for all cultures & languages, with new designed aids and games created to assist the learning process.
