Prize-Winning Painter Volunteers at our Workshop!

Liora Rosenman is a prize-winning artist. But she always felt that something was missing in her art - until she joined Haverim's Art Rehabilitation workshop. 

For several years now, Liora shows up on Wednesdays at the Tel Hashomer Rehabilitation Dept. She helps Haverim's volunteers set up the easels and distribute the paints and water bowls. She then guides the patients to their easels, and helps choose a subject to paint, or a photograph to copy, suggesting techniques for painting the sky, sea foam and more.

Channel 10 interviewed a few patients - see our link.

Liora joins half a dozen loyal volunteers who help shed some light and llend some color to patients who spend months in a painful rehabilitation process.

Soldiers and veterans, youth and elderly. Everyone is welcome to a 'time out' from the daily routine of a hospital ward - to a colorful and artistic respite.

Join us. Your support goes a long way! We constantly need new paints, canvas and easels for the patients. 

Thank you.

4500 people a month now getting free meds from us!

We are proud to announce  a record-breaking number of packages of free medicines sent to people in need around Israel!

Every year since our creation, in 2003, we've witnessed a growth in the number of people requesting our aid.

Thanks to your support - we can respond with 'Yes! We have that medicine!' to more and more people in need every year.

This year, over 4500 packages of free medicines were sent out: every month by post, by our Free Pharmacy van and via our growing network of Bike4Meds motorbikes (we have 2 so far). We're consistently working to improve the safe and timely delivery of the medicines and to ensure that everyone recieves the chronic, pain-relieving and life-saving meds they need on time.

We now have over 600 collection points across the country: people and organizations who gather unused medicines. Together with donations from the 28 pharmaceutical companies we've partnered with, we can now answer the growing demand for medicines quicker. The medicines are all checked, one by one, at our offices and either sent out to the patients, or sent to 'green' disposal, so that expired meds no longer contaminate our soil and water.

Did you know? You, or your organization, can visit our Free Pharmacy, or come and volunteer! We need little advance notice: Just contact us (dalit@haverim.org.il) and we'll set this up. 

Join us: join our mission to ensure that nobody in Israel lacks medicine because of financial need.

Soldiers & Civilians together at Art Therapy!

Launched during the last war, Operation Protective Edge (July-August 2014), Haverim's Art Therapy Workshop has been providing a welcome oasis of peace for soldiers, victims of terror attacks and civilians alike.

Every Wednesday afternoon our volunteer art teachers and students meet at the Rehabilitation Department of the Tel Hashomer (Sheba) hospital. They quickly set out the easels you've donated, together with the paints and brushes, and slowly slowly the artists come by.

Most have head or body injuries from accidents or terror incidents. Their lives have completely changed. Their families lives have changed. But one event remains constant: The Art Therapy  Workshop on Wednesday, at the department's mess hall.

Thank you.

We need very little to keep the workshop running, week after week. Your support helps us buy the simple art supplies we need.
