This month, many of our cases B”H reached successful conclusions. Here are some samples.
Your Rights, Our Concern
Little Sara* suffers from severe food allergies. She can’t attend after school activities, and she needs constant adult supervision to make sure that she does not come into contact with the foods that threaten her life. On the outside, she seems like a normal child. But inside, her fear of a breakout is debilitating. When her parents applied for disability pension from Bituach Leumi, their application was rejected for a reason that was completely unclear. Everyone advised Sara’s parents to drop the case. But they called Chaim V’Chessed.
Sara’s parents received step-by-step instructions and a good dose of encouragement. Our bureaucratic staff walked them through the endless paperwork,doctor’s visits, and how to maximize it all to ensure the best possible outcome. This month, Sara’s parents were approved for a special disability pension from Bituach Leumi!
Newborn baby Yosef* had a health complication that made it impossible for him to join a private health insurance plan. Being the child of foreign citizens, he could not join Bituach Leumi until he had a passport and visa, which took 5 weeks to obtain. But he was hospitalized for a high fever before his Bituach Leumi application was processed. His parents were left without a way to pay for the hospitalization.
Chaim V’Chessed offered the family valuable assistance and support in the hospital. At the same time, we reached out to senior contacts in Bituach Leumi on their behalf. B”H, we succeeded in having Yosef’s Bituach Leumi application accepted immediately.
