Hadassah Pediatricians Team Up with Philippine Embassy to Nurture Children’s Health

On a rainy winter day, a group of pediatricians and a medical clown from the pediatric department of Hadassah's hospital in Mount Scopus traveled to Tel Aviv for Hadassah's annual preventive health initiative at the Philippine Embassy.

This special humanitarian endeavor, which is now in its third year, provides free vaccinations and health check-ups to children of Philippine mothers, most of whom lack medical insurance. Hadassah's pediatricians were assisted by Philippine nurses, who currently work as caregivers in Israeli nursing homes. A Philippine Embassy team arranged tables and beds for the medical examinations and prepared work stations for the nurses.

"The children were cooperative and the parents were thankful and very much appreciated the volunteer effort," relates Prof. Eitan Kerem, Chair of the Pediatrics Division at Hadassah. "With her talents and special approach, Hadassah's medical clown contributed to the success of the initiative and to the pleasant atmosphere."

The program ended with a lunch, hosted by HE Generoso D.G. Calonge, Ambassador to Israel from the Philippines.
