Road to Recovery
Humanity Before Politics
Road to Recovery (Derech Hachlama) is a non-profit organisation that provides transport for hundreds of Palestinian children suffering from cancer, leukaemia, kidney disease and other life threatening illnesses. For these children and their families, travel costs to Israeli hospitals are prohibitive, particularly for patients requiring regular treatment. Apart from the obvious benefits to the patients, this kind of project brings together many Palestinian field volunteers, hospital personnel and fellow non-profit Israeli and Palestinian organisations. These projects are therefore as much about the nurturing of mutual respect, trust and dialog as they are about individual patients’ physical recovery. Through their actions, the volunteers seek to break down the barriers of mistrust between Israelis and Palestinians.
