In 2005, an Israeli-France partnership formed "Heart for Peace," a program at Hadassah Medical Organization in Ein Kerem, which cares for Palestinian children suffering from severe heart disease, free of charge. Since its inception the association has raised funds to save the lives of over 500 Palestinian children in need of cardiac surgery.

In a show of support for the diplomatic and philanthropic program, Paris Mayor Bertrand Delanoe paid a visit to Hadassah's hospital on June 13 while on a trip to the region, meeting with Dr. Muriel Haim, president of the association, and Prof. Jean-Jacques Azaria Rein, head of Hadassah's Pediatric Cardiology Department.

Acting Director General Prof. Yuval Weiss escorted the mayor to the Pediatric Cardiology Department where Prof. Rein presented a report on "Heart for Peace" to the delegation, emphasizing the collaboration between his Palestinian and Israeli colleagues. Training and teaching Palestinians, he said, are key solutions to a bridge for peace between the peoples.

Mayor Delanoe and the delegation discussed finding appropriate ways to support the association and how to expand collaboration between Parisian and Israeli hospitals.
