Friends for Health: Ensuring that every person in Israel receives the medicines they need, regardless of their economic situation, so that nobody no longer need choose between medicine – and food ever again.
This past year has seen a steep rise in requests for free medicine from people of all ages, throughout the country.
Just this last month, we helped 20-year old Bogdan find medicines worth over $35,000 for his life-threatening aplastic anemia, and 3-year old Paulina with medicine for her neuroblastoma-type cancer.
Over 7,000 people received free medicines from us last month, and the requests keep coming in.
At the moment, we have nearly 2,500 requests we cannot respond to due to lack of resources. We have the medicines in the Free Pharmacy, but we lack the personnel to fulfill the prescriptions and to deliver the medicines to the patients.
These are people who must choose every month between medicine and food. By providing them with a monthly supply of medicine, we ensure their health, their wellbeing and sometimes their lives.
