Who we are
About the non-profit organisation Chaiyanu. Chaiyanu was established in 1999 to aid children diagnosed with cancer and their families. At Chaiyanu, we consider Children with cancer as a whole – the child, the family and their home environment.
Chaiyanu is the Israeli branch of the international Organisation ‘Chai Lifeline’. In its activities Chaiyanu encompasses all areas related to the child’s illness as well as the organisation of the family during the time of hospitalization, at home and during recovery.

The CEO's thing
It usually starts with a simple phone call that manages to change the whole family life. The world has 'turned' upside down unequivocally and nothing will be left as it was before. We have been there, in this situation, many times. Too many times. Although we are not part of the medical staff, we have been able to understand what these families really need, and along the way we stick to it and try to give it to them.

Throughout the year, the Chaiyanu family arranges a variety of activities for the children and their families. We help celebrate birthdays, fulfill dreams, as well as hold parties with artists and celebrities and much, much, more!
Activities in Hospitals
With the help of the professional team, girls performing their National Service duty and an array of volunteers who spend every day at the hospital, accompany the children on tests and treatments and do as much as possible to improve their mood and distract them from the difficulty of their situation and their pain.
