October Clinic - New mental health clinic
Israel faces an unprecedented demand for mental health support. October Clinic is a brand-new clinic where leaders in the field of mental health offer deep healing to a war-wearied nation. Please partner today.
IDF emergency medical equipment
Emergency medical equipment is in short supply for IDF troops. Front-line paramedics can only save our soldiers if they are fully equipped with the necessary supplies and technology. Join us now to save the lives of young heroes on the front lines.
Vital medical supplies for Israel’s hospitals and clinics
The overwhelmed medical system faces a serious national shortage of life-saving medical materials. Help us keep hospitals and clinics operational as JHO provides essential medical supplies for Israel’s entire healthcare network.
Humanitarian aid for displaced persons
Israel is experiencing a growing displaced persons crisis. Help JHO provide food and shelter, and become a lifeline for the hundreds of thousands of displaced civilians today.
The ongoing war in Gaza and growing tension in northern Israel, the protracted hostage crisis, and the consequences of the brutality of the October 7th attack have burdened the medical system beyond capacity. Healthcare has taken a major hit, and the lives of innocent civilians hang in the balance.
Government resources, however, are concentrated on the IDF’s military initiatives; the result is a woeful lack of funds for critical healthcare services in an hour of dire need. If left unchecked, the situation will rapidly deteriorate, with nation-wide catastrophic consequences.
Insufficient funding for mental health services promises poor results for the hostages, the survivors, the soldiers, and the many thousands of families still reeling from Hamas’ savagery. That’s right: having managed to survive the hell of their captivity, the hostages discover that they cannot find adequate mental health services upon their return home. The very soldiers whose missions are the top national funding priority leave the battlefield in serious need of mental health support, only to find services insufficient or altogether inaccessible. Survivors of the massacre and their fellow civilians coping with the strain of war all face a rapid erosion of mental health and an alarming national shortage of clinicians and therapists.
IDF emergency medical equipment:
The IDF is lacking emergency medical equipment, which means the risk of death or permanent injury to our soldiers is greater than usual – and also avoidable. With the purchase of critical technology like medevac helicopters and point-of-care surgical and diagnostic equipment, JHO is keeping IDF military paramedics at the cutting-edge of emergency medicine.
Essential medical supplies:
Medical facilities throughout the country have been overwhelmed since the initial attack. The sudden surge of critically-wounded patients and the resulting rising demand for long-term rehabilitation are pushing hospitals and clinics beyond capacity. Basic medical materials are in short supply, which only compounds the strain on the healthcare system. Without a substantial contribution of essential materials, the medical supplies shortage will push Israel into a national medical crisis.
Many hundreds of thousands of Israelis were displaced at the outbreak of the war, with additional tens of thousands temporarily relocated to government-funded guesthouses and short-term respite facilities. Hundreds of thousands remain displaced today, their homes uninhabitable due to ongoing security concerns or damage from enemy explosives. The cost of supporting a displaced family of four is approximately $1,800 – $2,000 per week. As these war-weary civilians try to construct a sense of stability amid tremendous uncertainty, the government’s efforts to meet their basic human needs remain inadequate. Food, shelter, access to education for children in temporary living conditions – fundamental challenges continue to escalate as the humanitarian crisis threatens to plunge Israel into further chaos.
