Facing Israel's Healthcare Crisis: Yad Sarah's role

shai special wheelchair

With hospitals in Israel struggling with overcrowding, and a report from the Ministry of Health indicating that 44% of Israelis are frustrated by long waits and overwhelmed medical staff, Yad Sarah is uniquely positioned to address some of these issues by ensuring that options for home care make it possible for people to receive care at home.  

Two foundations -- The Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust and the Rosenbojm-Komor Foundation -- have supported projects that promote the availability of home care equipment in Israel's periphery where the challenges facing communities in rural areas is particularly acute.  The foundations are also supporting the expansion of Yad Sarah's dental clinic, reducing wait time for primary and specialist care in the Jerusalem clinic and expanding Yad Sarah's mobile capacity, thereby bringing much needed dental care to the frail elderly at home. 

As no relief is in sight from the government, private philanthropy has stepped up to help Yad Sarah, an NGO with a large network throughout Israel and the largest group of active volunteers in Israel, giving the organization unique flexibility to innovate, experiment and quickly fill gaps.
