The First Jewish Medical and Rehabilitation Center in Moscow

19/06/2011 - 17 Sivan 5771

After the collapse of the Soviet Union in the fall of 1991, various and diverse socio-economic classes were created – the very rich and the very poor. It has come to the point that professionals in their 60s and onward – after working their entire lives for the Soviet Government – cannot afford a nutritious meal or professional medical care. Since then, Chamah has established soups kitchens, Meals on Wheels programs, humanitarian activities, and medical services in Moscow and 36 surrounding suburbs. Chamah had a dream to establish the first Jewish Medical and Rehabilitation Center in Moscow to serve those in need free of charge. We are proud to announce that, thank G-d, the construction of the facility has recently been completed; it is projected to serve about 6,000 elderly and disadvantaged children, combined. We are now facing the challenge of furnishing and equipping the center.
