Please help our teenagers in a Post Covid world.

Jerusalem’s teenagers need your help. Many have been terribly affected by the Covid-19 pandemic and the recent military conflict.

There has a been a dramatic increase in the incidence and severity of eating disorders and many teenagers are waiting for lifesaving treatment.

This year to date, Shaare Zedek has treated more than double the number of teenagers with eating disorders compared to the same period in 2019.

This year, on 1 August 2021, please support Shaare Zedek’s Medical Center’s Adolescent Medicine Service and help us respond to the profound need.

Your donation will help us respond to the increased need, and will help educate doctors, teachers and parents to identify and treat eating disorders and save lives.
