the Health Basket Annual funded by the Ministry of Health does not include many essential medications. What do you do when a child is sick and tormented, hospitalized, and in need of such a medication – and his family has no money to pay for it? What happens when parents do not have money for basic needs, like food and drinks?
Especially for such situations, the organization LATET TIKVA (giving hope) set up a special department of food aid and medicines.
Department of Budget approves drugs, subject to the approval of the hospital and the local welfare department, to the city where the child lives.
Taking into account that parents of sick children, even if their financial situation is stable, are forced to miss many days of work to stay close to their son’s hospital bed, thus impeding their economic security.
