Vision

Veahavta was created under the values of the basic human rights – rights we have simply because we all exist as human beings.
These universal rights are inherent to all od us, regardless of nationality, gender, color, religion’ language or any other status.
We believe that the state of the Jewish people, after the holocaust, should give a hand to any human being in a need.

Activity

VeAhavta Health Clinic – Equal Health Care for All
Located in the northern Israeli town of Haifa, provides medical and psychosocial services to nearly twenty thousand inhabitants who have no legal status and no medical care in Israel. Founded in fall 2019 by a dedicated group of medical professionals. VeAhavta is operated by volunteer doctors, nurses, social workers, administrators and other health care professionals who believe that all people should be guaranteed the right to health care. Many already face numerous other challenges and obstacles as displaced persons, asylum-seekers, victims of human trafficking and illegal immigrants. These include Palestinians living in Israel, Palestinian members of the LGBTQIA community who are in mortal danger in the Palestinian Territories due to their sexual orientation; asylum seekers from African countries, particularly Eritrea and Sudan; immigrants from the former Soviet Union, many of them victims of sex trafficking; tourists stranded in Israel for prolonged periods of time; legal and illegal migrant workers; and spouses and children of Israeli citizens who have been denied legal status by the state.
