Shaare Zedek

Shaare Zedek UK exists to raise funds for the Shaare Zedek Medical Centre in Jerusalem. It is a special place, combining 116 years of compassionate care with advanced medicine. Our hospital is strictly non-political and does not discriminate on the grounds of religious, racial or financial means. Shaare Zedek serves more than half a million patients annually. It is the fastest growing hospital in the region and continues to respond to the needs of Jerusalem's uniquely diverse population.

.

The incredible work of our hospital extends beyond Israel to international disaster recovery operations, most recently in Nepal in 2015. It promotes collaboration between research institutions, including the prestigious Kings College, London and supports infrastructure in developing countries. One such initiative includes training Ethiopian doctors through a sponsorship programme developing Ethiopia’s much needed expertise in paediatric medicine.

In a city where 34% of the population are 14 years old or younger, over half of Jerusalem’s children live below the poverty line. Shaare Zedek was one of the first hospitals in Israel to recognise the need for specialist paediatric medical facilities. Our dedicated Women & Children’s Hospital is home to busiest maternity unit and the largest Neonatal Intensive Care Unit in the world.  Children with some of the rarest conditions come to Shaare Zedek for treatment from across the world. 

As the medical needs of Jerusalem continue to grow, we are determined to ensure that Shaare Zedek is ready to meet these needs and continue to pioneer expertise in all areas.

Team Shaare Zedek: this year, we are determined to make the fun run the most fun day of the year. As well as taking part in the regular 1k, 5k, 10k, and 16k races, we would love you to join our team for the Shaare Zedek sponsored bed push. We will be pushing a hospital bed around the 1k course and want to recruit as many children, adults and families as possible to be part of this team. This team is open to absolutely everyone and will be wheelchair and SEND family friendly and we will be taking a slow and steady pace around the track to soak up the atmosphere. If this sounds like your perfect day out please sign up for team Shaare Zedek and select the 1k race for team bed push.
