Saving lives since 2003

About Haverim L'Refuah

and our life-saving mission

At Haverim L'Refuah, we are dedicated to our mission to address the critical issue of medication waste and support those in need. With a vast network of collection points throughout the country, we enable individuals to donate unused medications. By facilitating the redistribution of these medications, we play a pivotal role in ensuring that valuable resources are not wasted, while helping those who may not have access to necessary medications due to financial constraints or other circumstances.

One of our key strengths lies in our collaboration with pharmaceutical companies. Through partnerships, we work closely with these companies to obtain donations of expensive and specialized medications that might otherwise be unaffordable for many patients. By leveraging these connections, we provide a broader range of drugs and increase the impact of our work in supporting individuals with various medical needs.

Moreover, we go beyond medication collection and redistribution. We also provide legal assistance to patients facing challenges accessing proper medical treatment or medication due to bureaucratic hurdles or other legal complexities. By offering guidance and support, we help ensure that individuals receive the necessary care and medications they require to manage their health conditions effectively.

Together, through medication collection, collaboration with pharmaceutical companies, and legal advocacy, we are making a tangible difference in the lives of those who rely on us. Our efforts not only prevent medication waste but also provide critical support to individuals facing financial constraints and other obstacles to accessing essential medications. Join us in our mission to promote health, reduce waste, and create a more equitable healthcare system for all.
