DID YOU KNOW? 

Most people are familiar with Hadassah's life saving work at our two hospitals in Jerusalem and our life-changing work with Youth Aliyah and Hadassah College Jerusalem.

Most know about our Young Judaea Camps and our advocacy efforts in the United States.

But do you know about Hadassah's humanitarian work around the globe?

Hadassah doctors and nurses were one of the first to set up operating tents. And they were the FIRST to deliver babies, one named Israel!

In Ethiopia...
Hadassah adopted an orphanage of children who have AIDS, reducing the number of deaths from 25% to 1%. Senior Hadassah doctors participated in a medical relief mission to a rural district in North Ethiopia, operating a mobile outreach clinic providing care to 2,500 patients.

In Kenya...
Within hours of the 2002 terrorist bombing in Mombassa, a rescue team of Hadassah doctors set out to assess the situation and initiate treatment. Hadassah eye surgeons have returned the ability to see to thousands of blind Kenyans. Ophthalmologists from Hadassah routinely spend two years performing surgery in Africa.

In China...
A delegation of our pediatric cardiologists spent 10 days operating on 21 children with heart problems and training local medical staff in the latest catheterization techniques.

In Kazakhstan...
A team of our doctors treated babies suffering from lead poisoning, then trained local doctors to conduct testing and treatment.

In Russia...
