The Zichron Menachem Association has opened a Ninja Room for children with cancer.

The idea came about following the dream of a six-year-old boy who had cancer and said that his dream was to one day be on Ninja Israel. 

At Zichron Menachem they wanted to fulfill a dream for him and they built him a one-room facility and immediately saw how in one moment the child, who had difficulty walking and was very weak, suddenly jumped in the air on the facility.

This led the association to set up a large room for all the children to allow others to discover the strength within them, to do sporting activities that would take them away for a little bit from the routine of dealing with cancer.

The inauguration ceremony of the Ninja Room was held on Tuesday, February 1, with the participation of the Mayor of Jerusalem, Moshe Lion, children of the Zichron Menachem Association, Ninja Israel contestants and public figures.

Zichron Menachem has been working for boys and girls with cancer for over 30 years, and helps them and their families through a variety of activities and extensive social activities: a hair donation project that guarantees cancer patients a wig, the My House of Dreams educational center, where children with cancer receive study assistance, take classes and do activities, a kindergarten for children with cancer, instructional groups for families, camps in Israel and abroad and more.
