Donations Sought for 10-Year-Old Ofra Cancer Victim

The Pa'amonim organization has put its fundraising services at the disposal of a family from the Binyamin-region community of Ofra, whose 10-year-old boy, Rotem, is undergoing a unique chemotherapy treatment at a German hospital to fight the third case of cancer he has had to fight since he was 18 months old. Neighbors say the treatment will last weeks, after which Rotem will return to Israel, but he will need to go to Germany for further treatment.

The cost of the treatment is 1.5 million shekels. To read the story in Hebrew, with a link for making a donation, click here.
