Chronically-ill children spend a significant part of their childhood in a hospital. 

We provide hope and comfort for children with heart disease and other chronic illnesses by giving them a special teddy bear to accompany them during their difficult medical journey. This not only provides comfort but brings a sense of childhood and joy back into the hospital.

GIVE

We surprise patients with a special teddy bear.

EDUCATE

We teach hospital staff, parents and teachers about play therapy.

RAISE AWARENESS

We raise awareness about heart disease.

You can help us make a difference.

While Bears for Hope brings a teddy bear to any child with cancer or another chronic illness, we are the only nonprofit organization in Israel that focuses primarily on children with heart disease.
