Rosh Hashanah Appeal


This September Emma should have been putting her brand new school uniform on and preparing for the new term. Instead she is facing gruelling treatment for leukaemia, treatment that will be shattering 
for the whole family.

Her parents are struggling with the chaos and upheaval of the shock of the diagnosis, as well as the everyday juggling of hospital appointments for Emma. All while trying to keep life normal for her brother and sister.
Camp Simcha is here to ease the suffering of Jewish children and their families touched by the devastating effects of serious childhood illness.

We do this through our practical and emotional support including hospital transport, respite care, counselling, play and pet therapies and home school tutoring. Our powerful positive experiences from special parties and outings to our Big Brother and Big Sister volunteers aim to lift the spirits and bring laughter to children. All of our services are delivered free of charge to families across the spectrum of Jewish affiliation and observance whenever they need us and for as long as they need us.

But we receive no government funding at all for these services. So this New Year, help us to help more families, to provide them with one of our caring and loving Family Liaison Officers to talk to, to be a shoulder to cry on, an ear to listen and someone to guide them through our services and help them with the challenges they face.

We need your help to make the lives of families like Emma’s easier and bring some sweetness into their 
most difficult days. Please make a donation using the form below.

Wishing you and your family a Shana Tova.
