How Your Donations Help

Donations help our doctors, nurses, researchers, and staff support our patients through:

  • Specialized equipment, facilities, and therapies
  • Research that leads to innovative therapies, better outcomes and improved quality of life
  • Community health programs, including diagnostic screenings, mobile vans, and public education outreach

We rely on donors to close the funding gap between the services we provide and the compensation we receive from other sources.  Thanks to your generosity and compassion, we can serve thousands of civilians and soldiers in Israel’s southern periphery.

Every gift is significant.  Your gift will help us protect lives and promote Israeli healthcare.  You can make a difference.  All donations are tax-deductible in the United States to the extent allowable by law.
