Chai Lifeline’s Simcha Programs

A resident of Lakewood, New Jersey, Avrahom Joseph currently serves on the board of Yeshiva Meon Hatorah in Spring Valley, New York. Additionally, Avrahom Joseph contributes to a number of charitable organizations, including Chai Lifeline.

Located throughout the United States, Canada, and other countries around the world, Chai Lifeline is dedicated to supporting children with life-threatening illnesses, their families, and their communities. The nonprofit organization’s 24 year-round programs and services are offered free of charge for as long as the family is in need.

Every summer, Chai Lifeline hosts two overnight camps for hundreds of children. Camp Simcha welcomes campers with cancer and other blood disorders, while Camp Simcha Special is open to campers with other chronic conditions.

Specially designed to meet the campers’ needs, the popular camps provide a range of activities, from sports and water games to entertainment and arts and crafts. Both camps have state-of-the-art medical facilities to ensure that campers stay safe while they have fun and create memories. Led by experienced medical specialists, the facilities have full nursing and emergency technicians in addition to a fully staffed ambulance and an on-call Medevac helicopter. To accommodate children and teens with special needs and mobility issues, Camp Simcha Special staff can assist with wheelchairs, walkers, gastric tubes, and respirators.
