Join an AFSMC mission to Israel and show your support and love
Israel’s Sheba Medical Center has placed a mobile women’s health clinic on the ground in Ukraine to support victims of sexual assault and assist with other medical needs.
Sheba Medical Center has partnered with two other organizations to provide a mobile women’s health clinic. Offering two treatment rooms, an intake room and equipment like an ultrasound, the clinic is currently traveling around Ukraine.
No appointment is needed and there is no cost to patients. They simply show up and are given needed treatment as well as follow-up instructions for local caregivers. Sheba also makes use if its remote treatment capabilities to engage healthcare providers at the main campus in Ramat Gan.
The clinic partners with local officials as it travels, spreading the word via social media, SMS, radio and local officials.
Jewish ethics place great emphasis on acts of lovingkindness which cannot be reciprocated. And there is no more meaningful time for this than Elul, as we approach the holidays.
Share your heart, by helping to heal those harmed in this terrible conflict.
In the middle of the summer, Brian Abrahams, CEO of American Friends of Sheba Medical Center, received a call from the large Tel Aviv-area hospital with an unexpected request: Could he wire $60,000 to a company in Ohio to buy a trailer?
“Sheba Medical Center is an Israeli government-affiliated hospital, they can’t simply be wiring money out of the country, especially for something that’s not budgeted,” Abrahams told eJewishPhilanthropy. “So, [we] bought this trailer.”
Over the next several months, the trailer was shipped to Hamburg, Germany, where it was outfitted with ultrasound machines and stocked with medical supplies as part of the hospital’s latest venture in Ukraine: A mobile clinic to treat STDs and provide reproductive health services for women and children across the country.
Your gift will go directly toward funding the mobile clinic and victims of sexual assault.
