Sponsor delicious meals for families with children living with pediatric illnesses.
Now more then ever, during the outbreak of Covid-19 moms and dads of sick children have no time to cook, get groceries or even leave their child’s bedside.
Hot meals are a very small gesture that can be so impactful to families spending their time at the hospital or at home. A small gesture that can change their mood and give them a much-needed boost even through these crazy times.
Our case workers – who personally and directly support our families – are creative and patient. They hold very special relationships with the parents and children and their hospital visits are always a bright moment in what are long and difficult days. When the notifications went out to the parents, one of our case workers got a call from a concerned parent – “does this impact your visits?”
They continue to go to the hospital daily and are arranging to meet family in the lobby or other public area so that they can pass off the special gifts and care packages ,groceries and meal support for their families and children who are inpatients. If parents are unable to leave their child’s room, the care-packages are being left with at the nurses’ station.
This is in part what life is like when you are met with the realities of life-threatening or lifelong chronic illness.
Chai Lifeline Canada will continue to provide as many services as we can – as much as needed.
