Free Meds Project: To be extended via Mobile Van

By Dalit Boutboul | Marketing and Fundraising Person

The Free Medicine project has been successfully active for the last 14 years. We currently send out over 4,000 packages of free medicine every month to people all over Israel. However, the requests for free medication never cease to rise. We need to be able to deliver medicine even faster, to people who urgently need medical equipment, supplements, medicine and more - all over the country.

As a result, we came up - and implemented - a novel idea: A Mobile Pharmacy van, which will set out every day to a different city, to distribute medicine to our recipients in a timely, professional and respectful manner.

Thanks to supporters from Australia, Panama and Israel, we have succeeded in acquiring one such van, which is currently being tailored to serve as a fully servicable 'Pharmacy on Wheels', registered and approved by the Ministry of Health.

We plan to activate the van beginning of 2016 and promise to share photos!

Thanks to the van, we will be able to serve more people, more quickly and in a more cost effective manner, diverting funds to acquiring medicine, rather than to mailing them.
