SHAARE ZEDEK UK
Shaare Zedek UK exists to raise funds for the Shaare Zedek Medical Centre in Jerusalem. It is a special place, combining 120 years of compassionate care with advanced medicine.
Our hospital is strictly non-political and does not discriminate on the grounds of religious, racial or financial means. Shaare Zedek serves more than half a million patients annually. It is the fastest growing hospital in the region and continues to respond to the needs of Jerusalem's uniquely diverse population.
The incredible work of our hospital extends beyond Israel to international disaster recovery operations, most recently following the devastating earthquake in Turkey. . It promotes collaboration between research institutions, including the prestigious Kings College, London and supports infrastructure in developing countries. One such initiative includes training Ethiopian doctors through a sponsorship programme developing Ethiopia’s much needed expertise in paediatric medicine.
In a city where 34% of the population are 14 years old or younger, over half of Jerusalem’s children live below the poverty line. Shaare Zedek was one of the first hospitals in Israel to recognise the need for specialist paediatric medical facilities. Our dedicated Women & Children’s Hospital is home to busiest maternity unit and the largest Neonatal Intensive Care Unit in the world. Children with some of the rarest conditions come to Shaare Zedek for treatment from across the world.
As the medical needs of Jerusalem continue to grow, we are determined to ensure that Shaare Zedek is ready to meet these needs and continue to pioneer expertise in all areas.
