About Ezer Mizion
Ezer Mizion, the Israel Health Support Organization, is one of the largest non-profits in Israel, benefitting over 650,000 people a year. Founded in 1979, its mission is to provide paramedical and social services for Israels sick, elderly and disabled and underserved populations.
Ezer Mizion grew out of Chayanna Chollacks experience interacting with chronically ill patients while taking care of his ailing father-in-law; he realized that for those people in crisis, an environment of warmth, comfort and friendship was essential. Today Ezer Mizion offers extensive programming, including a medical referral and services program, food distribution and hospital volunteer programs, ambulance and transport programs, and the Ezer Mizion Bone Marrow Donor Registry, today the largest Jewish bone marrow registry in the world.
