lahav- for the premature infants in ‘israel
December 25, 2009

After I brought my premature twin boys home, they started to have apneas at home (i.e. they would stop breathing). This was the scariest thing I have ever experienced! In addition to support from our pediatrician, I discovered LAHAV's forum for parents of preemies, and got a lot of support and information there. And it was all done voluntarily, by working parents.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

policy changes by Israeli Ministry of Health.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

work to strengthen its organizational capacity.

More feedback

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

being able to help and support new parents of preemies.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

committed, passionate to make a change, doing all their work voluntarily, on top of their full time work and raising a family.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Promote the condition of preemies inside and outside the NICU by affecting policy makers and budget considerations, for improving menpower in the NICUs, post-discharge follow-up, better information and support for parents, vaccinations for more preemies...

Ways to make it better...

there were full time employees, not only volunteers.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Affecting policy makers and impacting budget priorities of the Israeli government (which the organization has been doing successfully so far).

One thing I'd also say is that...

The work that have been done by caring parents and citizens, totally voluntarily for four years, and the acheivement attained, are amazing!
