Israel a Force for Good in the World – Ziv for Venezuelan Refugees

Friends of Ziv Medical Center, Ziv Medical Center in Northern Israel is conducting a humanitarian campaign: “Ziv for Venezuelan Refugees” to provide vaccines, medicines, and have teams of experienced Israeli doctors to come and support hospitals and health-care personnel in countries bordering Venezuela that are providing medical assistance to Venezuelan refugees.

Thousands of Venezuelans cross the border every week seeking medical attention and medicines, unavailable in Venezuela. The demand has overwhelmed the Brazilian health system.

In particular the lack of vaccination in Venezuela has spurred a series of epidemics, measles being the most notorious.

A team of doctors from Ziv Medical Center, Israel, will be traveling to Brazil’s Northern Province, bordering with Venezuela.

Ziv’s team of doctors have the expertise to tackle the situation and bring relief and support, even if temporarily, to their Brazilian counterparts.

On Wednesday, February 6, 2019, Friends of Ziv Medical Center will be holding, in Hollywood, California, a fundraiser in support of its ‘Helping the Venezuelan Refugees Campaign‘.
