Welcome to David Polaner's Fundraising Page!
For the fifth time, I am participating in Alyn Hospital’s bike ride in Israel- Wheels of Love.
ALYN Hospital is an officially registered non-profit facility rehabilitating children and adolescents who are suffering from congenital or acquired conditions, including head trauma, injuries sustained in road or domestic accidents, terror attacks and children recovering from operations for the removal of benign or malignant tumors.
Only a portion of every child’s care is reimbursed by the Israeli Health Funds or other referring agencies. Wheels of Love (WOL) sponsorships help to meet the shortfall between the actual cost of ALYN’s exemplary multidisciplinary rehabilitation treatment and the officially fixed reimbursement payments received for each child hospitalized in the in-patient Rehabilitation Unit, intensive care Respiratory Rehabilitation Unit or who attends the SHACHAR Day Care Center.
This shortfall is approximately $84 per day per child!!!
ALYN Hospital is dependent on WOL sponsorships to ensure that it can continue to give both the physically challenged children in its care today – and those who will be in its care tomorrow – every chance to reach their maximum potential and, where possible, become independent and contributing citizens of Israel.This year the need is especially great since the Ministry of Health has ruled staff must be increased and insurance companies have reduced reimbursements. Please help me so that we can both do a mitzvah to help transform disabilities into abilities.
