United Hatzalah is the largest independent, non-profit, Emergency Medical Service in Israel whose service is delivered solely by community-based, trained volunteer medics. It aims to plug the gap between when an emergency call is made and the time an ambulance arrives. Our average response time is just three minutes (90 seconds in some urban areas), providing the fastest emergency medical response across the country and, ultimately, resulting in many more lives being saved.
Our service is funded entirely through donations and is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. It is free to anyone that needs it, regardless of insurance status, religion or nationality.

Every day, thousands of Israeli women are asked to decide between paying their bills and having their babies. Over 35,000 women throughout Israel have abortions each year, often due to extreme financial stress. Together, we can change that.
Efrat has been giving hope to thousands of women each year to make sure they can continue their pregnancies and give birth to their babies with joy and dignity. Efrat provides over 3,000 women with all of the basic needs of a new-born including a cot, buggy, baby bath, and the promise of continued monthly support of diapers, baby formula and more, for 24 months after the baby is born.
Help us continue to grow – the cost of saving one child is £120 but any amount can help.

Opening our doors in 1902 Shaare Zedek Medical Centre has been treating and caring for patients for over 120 years. With advanced medicine and compassionate care, Shaare Zedek is known as much for the dedication and commitment of its medical teams as it is for its internationally acclaimed centres of medical excellence.
Patients have nicknamed Shaare Zedek the ‘Hospital with a Heart’. With close to 100 departments serving more than half a million patients annually, it is the fastest growing hospital in the region and continues to respond to the needs of Jerusalem’s uniquely diverse population. The hospital does not, however, receive any government funding for equipment or development. Shaare Zedek’s friends in the UK play a crucial role in enabling the hospital to maintain and develop its ‘innovative medicine in the heart of Jerusalem’.
