Providing Free Meds for the October War Evacuees

By Dalit Boutboul | Marketing and Communications

The October 7th war has been challenging for our organization, on a personal and professional level we've never seen or experienced before.

Nevertheless, we have been working hard to respond to every reqeust for medical equipment and medicine received, and they have been - and remain - numerous.

In addition to the 7,000 packages of free medicine which we provide on a regular basis every month, since the outbreak of the war:

  • 11,000 requests for medicines and medical equipment were handled
  • 1,150 packages of medicine and medical equipment worth NIS 3 million were delivered.
  • Over 500,000 items (over 3 tons!) of medical equipment and medicines were sent to military units and civilians.
  • 30,000 boxes of medicine were delivered to evacuees.
  • 500 families who were afraid or could not leave their homes received medicine.

Today the numbers of families requesting our support remain high, as tens of thousands of evacuees have yet to return to their homes in the south of the country and in the north.

We are grateful for your support, which enables us to make sure that life-saving and life-enhancing medicines reach the people who so desperately need them.

Thanks to your support, families have less stress and worries, safe in the knowledge that their monthly or quarterly supply of medicines has been delivered.
