A special Purim party was held at ALYN hospital. The Rimon salsa band performed live for the children of ALYN.
The performance was held thanks to the donation of Roberta Pan-Shoffman, in memory of her brother, Hillard Pan, who loved two things above all others – music, and feeling mobile and independent. Hillard used a wheelchair, and every year Roberta donates both to ALYN and to Rimon, helping children achieve mobility and independence.
For the first time, the musical performance at ALYN combined Hillard’s two great loves and created an amazing bond between the children and the musicians.
Dr. Maurit Beeri, Director General of ALYN, says music can connect people, and salsa compels listeners to get up and dance: “Those who could dance – did, and those who didn’t danced with their hands and hearts. The performance was very exciting, and for this we are grateful”.
Amikam Kimmelman, director of Rimon summed up the event: “We came here to make the kids happy, but ended up receiving more from them than we ever gave. It was very moving seeing everybody happy and having a good time.”
We are pleased to tell you about an amazing project: A playground specifically designed for children on wheel chairs.
"We are learning to incorporate paying attention to spiritual care, which includes attending to the life a patients leads outside the hospital bed or clinic."
The rhythm, positive atmosphereand the band letting children on-stage, brought a tremendous amount of joy and pleasure to the children.
