The Israel Cancer Association has sent 130 children with cancer, along with their families, to a free vacation at Kibbutz Shefayim during the intermediate days of Succot. The camp for families from around the country, will cost the ICA NIS 400,000. They will be entertained at the water park, motor park, cultural events and a trip to Cesarea for four days and receive gifts donated by various companies. ICA director-general Miri Ziv said the event is made to bolster family ties and give them the strength to fight the child's disease. The project is funded by the ICA's annual Knock on the Door campaign, which will be held soon.
