Donors support medical clinic at the Sofia JCC

Allied Health professionals who increased their gifts to the Jewish Federation’s JFund to at least $180 between May 15 and June 15 of this year were part of an exciting opportunity to support a medical clinic operated out of the Sofia, Bulgaria Jewish Community Center. Without the support of these donors, the initiative, operated under the auspices of the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC), would not have otherwise received direct allocations from our local Jewish community.

This small clinic, staffed by local Jewish physicians, offers vital medical services outside the dysfunctional government healthcare system that is plagued by limited access, lengthy waiting lists, and substantial costs. In addition to key medical services, the clinic provides psychological support to the local community.

It is our goal to make this generous support an annual JHN tradition. Thank you to our donors for making this gift possible!
