New 'Keep Cool' Meds Boxes in Mobile Pharma Van!

Keep Cool Meds Boxes: For our Mobile Pharmacy Van!
Keep Cool Meds Boxes: For our Mobile Pharmacy Van!

Delivering medication directly to the patient, in a temperature-controlled and GPS-monitored cold-storage box.

In order to ensure the safe delivery of the medication during the 'last mile':  from the mobile pharmacy to the patients' homes, we will be purchasing 300 'Cool Meds' storage boxes. These are special containers that meet the strictest Ministry of Health criteria for pharmaceutical storage and transfer.

Each robust, light-weight and hygienic cold-storage box is delivered directly to the residence of the patient, where they are unpacked and then returned to Haverim for re-use.

By mobilizing our delivery, we can reach even more patients every year, surpassing our current delivery rate of 3,800 packages a month.

Ensuring the delivery of quality medicine

In order to maintain the medicine's viability, every unit includes a GPS system for real-time tracking of each package of medication, and the time it was delivered to the patient, as well as a temperature gauge to maintain and monitor a fixed temperature, so vital in Israel's hot climate.

The Keep Cool Meds box arrives in 3 sizes:

  • Small – for personal delivery of medication to up to 3 patients
  • Medium – for delivery of medication by bicycle or motorbike to up to 7 patients
  • Large – for delivery of medication by the Mobile Pharmacy van to up to 20 patients.

Art Project has Expanded, and Split to 2 Workshops

Due to the enormous popularity of the Art Therapy workshop, the team has split into two:

The 'oldtimers' among us continue to provide art therapy lessons and experiences to the wonderful neurology and orthopedics patients.

In parallel, we've enlisted the help of some students of psychology, who volunteer their help with head trauma victims. Working with this group brings its own challenges to the team; both mental and physical. But the work is done with love and commitment.

A small donation goes a long way in providing art supplies to people who sometimes use art -- as the first step back to life.

Mobile Pharmacy van: Operational since March 1!

Mobile Pharmacy Van: Distribution Free Meds!
Mobile Pharmacy Van: Distribution Free Meds!

We are happy and proud to announce the launch of the Mobile Pharmacy Van!
The van was delivered end February and immediately hit the road, delivering free medication to hundreds of people all across Israel.

The van has solved a challenging situation we confronted: How do we safely deliver the medication to the people, in a temperature controlled environment? The Mobile Pharmacy Van includes temperature monitoring and a GPS System per each medicine-delivery box, which enables us to know at any moment where each package is.

Thank you!

It took us two years to get here; now we're working hard to finance the maintenance costs (boring, we know, but necessary to get the van out the door).

Join us - these wheels save lives, minimize pain, bring help and relief across the country.
