What We Do Best

Yad Sarah’s goal is to assist people to Recover at Home. Whether they have an illness, a disability, or are suffering from the conditions caused by age, whether they have a physical or cognitive impairment, if there is a medical intervention that can be achieved while the patient remains at home, Yad Sarah supplies the necessary equipment and resources.

Why Do We Do What We Do?

Passion. In Israel, there is a true sense of belonging to one community. Despite a diverse population coming from many parts of the world, there is a deep sense of responsibility for one another. Israel has people of different faiths, different ideologies, and different ethnic backgrounds but within the medical community and with Yad Sarah specifically, there are both clients and volunteers from the Jewish, Arab, Druze, Bedouin, and Christian communities working cooperatively.
