⚪ Friends of Yad Sarah:
Thanks to the broad scope of Yad Sarah’s activities and services, and the compassion and caring of its large volunteer corps, the organization has become an indelible part of the fabric of every-day Israeli society. Yad Sarah is also recognized widely as a model for a humane and cost-effective approach to caring for the ill and injured at home.
With 420,000 people helped every year by 6,000 volunteers in 100+ branches, it’s no wonder that a Dahaf Institute survey concluded that “…every second family in Israel has been helped by one of Yad Sarah’s service". They’re looking to build their board of directors here in NY, if you’re interested in getting involved in this important cause respond to me directly.
