When a child or parent is diagnosed with a serious illness, the fear, dread and confusion are overwhelming. Millions of thoughts swirl through the minds of parents - the grueling treatments, the unknown results, and above all, "what will become of the rest of the family?"
Through thoughtful, research-based and direct interventions, Kapayim, Be'ezras Hashem, seeks to lessen the negative impact of cancer and other serious short- term illnesses on the patient, siblings and the whole family unit. Kapayim provides effective supports that are either Center-based, home based, or hospital based in order to sustain the usual patterns of family and child functioning.
Its founders are people who have seen firsthand the critical effects of illness on a family. Their unique way of providing light and warmth comes from their main goal – על כפים ישאונך "On the palm of their hands you will be carried."
With the help of Hakadosh Baruch Hu, Kapayim carries the burden of mothers, fathers, and children of all ages with their support. Each family in need is offered a carefully designed multi-faceted system of aid, allowing the traumatic impact of disease to fade, ultimately letting hope and relief prevail.
Kapayim. Home and heart for families suffering from medical illness.
