The Regine Sixt Children's Aid Foundation expanded the children's ward in cooperation with Ein Herz für Kinder.

In the winter months, the occupancy rate rises substantially. The problem with this large number of patients is that some children have to lie and be treated in the corridors. There was no retreat where doctors and parents could discuss diagnoses and treatment options. This meant that the Hadassah Medical Center had to be extended after 34 years of clinical operations and required with new medical equipment.

The young patients are primarily Israeli and Arab children from the northern neighborhoods of Jerusalem, adjacent towns and villages, and from the Palestinian territories. Right here on Mount Scopus, daily interaction between Israelis and Arabs is clearly visible and self-evident for all those involved. In a joint effort with Ein Herz für Kinder, we supported urgent expansion of the children's ward and renewal of the medical equipment. On completion of the construction work, we can guarantee an excellent care for all children in need from this area.

The Regine Sixt Children’s Aid Foundation also supported the construction of a class room with online connection in the Hadassah Medical Relief Center. The sustainable goal is that sick children have the opportunity to take part in school lessons.
