Free Advice Days

‘Refua Shlemah’ is an extensive network working for many years to provide guided advice on designated days, including a wide range of medical subjects, with participation of leading specialists. Usually, turning to private clinics and specialists involves steep fees and lengthy waiting periods, which can result in patients paying the ultimate price. With our Free Advice Days, we open this up to the general public, allowing access to available clinics and top doctors from a spectrum of medical backgrounds.

Volunteer Events

Over the years, ‘Refua Shlema’ has produced innumerable morale visits by singers, musicians and medical clowns as well as specialized days to hand out pre-holiday care packages among the more “neglected” wards of hospitals in the Periphery of Israel. Our organization collects funds for these packages and places volunteers in different wards to assist.

International Medical Transportation

Rabbi Margalit has served as a medical escort to a multitude of patients that required transferring to other facilities to receive specialized treatments or complicated surgeries. He managed all the protocols and bureaucracy of transporting patients to their destination hospital and handled the medical elements involved in the process, such as on-board medical staff during the flight. Rabbi Yossi Margalit uses this array to provide medical aid to those without the necessary insurance and resources.
