The Jain family will be recognized for their continued support of the Children’s Medical Center’s Child Life Program
Sam S. Jain, the Founder and CEO of Fareportal, along with his wife Vera Jain are set to be honored on March 21, 2019 at the 22nd Annual “A Cause to Celebrate” fundraiser benefiting the Child Life Program at NYU Winthrop Hospital’s Children’s Medical Center.
The Child Life Program provides hospitalized children and their families with the assistance of certified Child Life Specialists who work to ease the fear and anxiety of hospitalization by helping pediatric patients to better understand their medical treatments.
“As a parent, I understand how the complexities of a hospital stay can cause confusion for the whole family,” said Mrs. Jain. “Child Life Specialists are incredibly helpful, stepping in to assist during stressful times when there’s an inability to think straight.”
The Jains are dedicated benefactors of the NYU Winthrop Hospital community and are long-time supporters of both the Children’s Medical Center as well as the Emergency Medicine program. As immigrants, both Mr. and Mrs. Jain are advocates for having quality medical care available to all patients in need.
“We wanted to be involved with the community – and NYU Winthrop’s Hempstead Pediatric Clinic is an excellent venue through which we can contribute,” said Mr. Jain. “As a family of immigrants, the clinic is close to our hearts since it provides care to many under served immigrant populations.”
Mr. Jain has carried his personal passion for philanthropy over into his travel technology company, Fareportal. The company has a longstanding commitment to helping communities in need through charitable donations and volunteer work.
