2 year old Sarah is going blind - We Can help!

Haverim : Saving Lives by Providing Free Medicines
Haverim : Saving Lives by Providing Free Medicines

2-year old Sarah was born with a severe birth defect in both her eyes. This past year, her left eye was coated by scar tissue, causing her complete blindness. Her doctors recommended she be urgently flown to a hospital in the U.S., where the renowned Dr. Zeidman would be able to save her eye and restore her vision.

Sarah's parents appealed to Haverim for help: Could we help raise the $20,000 immediately required for the treatment?

At Haverim, we handle hundreds of such cases every year. Cases where children and adults need urgent medicine or treatment, which they must fund themselves. The cost can reach hundreds of thousands of dollars, all which must urgently be transferred to the hospital or pharmacy treating the child in need.

Haverim immediately springs to action: 

  • Do we have the medicine our Free Pharmacy?
    If we do - we immediately send it to the patient, via our Mobile Pharmacy or one of our Bike4Meds motorbikes. If not:
  • We open a Fund For Life for the child: The fund is a bank account managed by Haverim, and which gathers funds from media campaigns we help organize. All donations are tax deductible, and they are handed over directly to the pharmacy/hospital providing the treatment. 100% of donations are handed over, Haverim does not charge any fees.
  • Can our Legal Department help? We have 6 volunteer lawyers and one retired judge - all working to help patients with their appeals to their HMOs. We have over 93% success rate in getting the required medicine via these channels.

You can help!

Your support helps us help children like Sarah receive the urgent life-saving or life-enhancing treatment they need. The treatment they need to be like every other child.
