Medicines Programme in Kyiv
The medical programme serves around 200 people, many of them Holocaust and Second World War veterans, of whom some are Righteous Gentiles.There are two doctors who run the clinic every other Sunday. If drugs are prescribed, they have to be obtained from a pharmacy at prices most people cannot afford. B’nai B’rith obtains the drugs from a wholesaler and passes them on to the patient.
Without your and our constant help in donating towards the £8,000 that we try to raise each year, this programme could not carry on and 200 very elderly and sick people would have nowhere else to turn.
Prof. Felix Levitas, President of the B’nai B’rith Kyiv Lodge, together with his wife, oversees the running of the medical aid project.
