As they admired the Lego creations, you could tell that they were setting themselves new, higher goals for their next Lego projects in the upcoming club sessions…Maor Cohen: “When I started the Lego Club for cancer patients at Ezer Mizion about two years ago, I admit that I did not fully understand the great significance of the entire family’s participation, not just that of the patient himself. Today, when I see how the Lego experience builds up the entire family unit, which is so fragile during this period, I realize the importance of Ezer Mizion’s contribution at this challenging period for these families.”pr oranit lego 2013 1669_ne_photo_stories3_05db5In honor of Sukkot and Pesach, Maor gets Lego sets donated to Ezer Mizion where they are given as holiday gifts to families with a cancer patient for the entire family to enjoy.
