Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Chai Lifeline is a New York City volunteer based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with multiple regional offices in the United States as well as affiliates in Canada, England, Israel, and Belgium. Founded in 1987 and currently headed by Rabbi Simcha Scholar, Chai Lifeline was primarily a cancer support organization that mushroomed into an umbrella organization which carries the motto Fighting Illness With Love. Chai Lifeline ensures that ill children are minimally effected by their illness thus bringing happiness to their tough childhood, also creating programs for their families so that the child doesn't feel the impact. They also ease the financial burden of devastating illnesses by offering all types of free services to stricken families. A widely acclaimed project is its pilot program Camp Simcha, a summer camp for children battling cancer and other hematological illnesses. Camp Simcha has since expanded and opened a second branch Camp Simcha Special for children with debilitating chronic conditions. Another program they initiated is the Project C.H.A.I. Crisis Intervention program.show more
