In the time of this global pandemic, our lives have been changed in ways we could not have imagined. We quickly realized that we are all vulnerable in ways we had never thought and our hopes and prayers have turned to our doctors, nurses, researchers and other first responders who are the pillars of our health care.
Hadassah Hospital has been there to help patients no matter what their color, race, religion or political aspirations were and serve over a million patients a year. They dive into medical challenges and work through diagnosis, comprehensive treatment, rehabilitation, and continue with in depth research. They’ve won numerous awards – including a Nobel Peace Prize Nomination in 2006 – for their research but such investigations cost money. In addition, they support several Youth Aliyah villages for at-risk children to help them secure a successful future.
So much has been done since the start of this crisis but more research must be accomplished to keep people safe.
