Onze Passie


Waarom wij er zijn

Onze overtuiging is dat netzoals men een dokter nodig heeft om de kanker te overmeesteren, heeft men dezelfde geestelijke hulp nodig. Deze stelling wordt door de medische wereld ondersteund. Vanuit onze eigen ervarig hebebn wij geleerd dat fysieke pijn, zwakte en angst de ziel verpletteren. Kankerpatienten die hun identiteit verliezen, raken daarbij ook de wil om te leven kwijt. Ouders die door zorgen en onwetendheid uit elkaar vallen, kunnen dan ook hun kinderen niet op de juiste manier steunen.

Wij doen er alles aan om jongeren en hun families van 0 tot 25 bij te staan ongeacht religie of achtergrond om ze uit de pijn en machteloosheid te halen en dit om te zetten in hoop en vreugde. De levenswaarde te onderstrepen en te ondersteunen op verschillende manieren.

Onze inspiratie



Er was eens n kind.. zo begint menig verhaal, zo begon ook ons verhaal. Jammer genoeg was ons verhaal van korte duur. In 1990 na jaren van een herhaaldelijke strijd tegen kanker; Na pijn, behandelingen, transplantatie en isolatie – begaf Menachem, onze oudste zoon het, hij was pas 15.
Tijdens de treurweek, werd al gauw duidelijk dat het verhaal van Menachem nog lang niet voorbij zou zijn, maar meer het begin van het verhaal was. Menachem heeft ons veel van zijn leven gegeven en gaf ons de inspiratie om dit door te geven. Wat wij zelf hebben ondervonden, als een worstelende familie, geven wij door aan gezinnen die een vergelijkbare realiteit ervaren als onszelf en aan hun kinderen die dapper worstelen met kanker.

Our inspiration


Why we were founded

Zichron Menachem was founded in 1990 by Chaim and Miri Ehrental after their oldest child, Menachem, died of leukaemia at the age of 15. Diagnosed at the age of 2, the Ehrentals soon realised there were few places they could turn for support. Zichron Menachem was created to change this.

Zichron Menachem has developed into Israel’s leading provider of support services to children with cancer and their families. Chaim and Miri use their expertise daily and have changed the lives of thousands of families.
