Supporting Hospitals in the Negev and the Galilee

SAVING LIFES IN THE PERIPHERY

The Negev and the Galilee, home to two million people, lack essential medical resources and services!

WHY HOSPITALS IN THE PERIPHERY 

  • Israel’s peripheral regions of the Negev and Galilee are home to close to 30% of the country's population
  • Distances to the center of the country are far, public transportation is infrequent, and large numbers of people in these economically depressed areas do not own private vehicles 
  • They are volatile areas that have suffered for decades from terror attacks and missile strikes from across the border, increasing the medical needs of the region  

WHY IS IT NECESSARY TO SUPPORT HOSPITALS IN THE PERIPHERY? 

  • The Negev and the Galilee don't enjoy the same medical resources and services that are available in the center of the country
  • The hospitals are chronically understaffed and overextended     

HOW DOES IT WORK?  

  • Keren Hayesod works with hospitals in Safed, Tiberias, Hadera, Afula, the Sharon area, Haifa,  Beer Sheva, and other locations in the periphery to raise funds for needed medical facilities and projects
  • Keren Hayesod is working with the Government of Israel to develop a concerted plan to upgrade hospitals in the periphery   

WHOM DO THEY HELP?

 
Two million Jews, Arabs, Christians, Druze, Bedouin, and Circassians as well as IDF soldiers, and UN troops
