Puah Institute is a fabulous organization that helps couples all over the world with infertility issues. The issues that these couples are struggling with are not only physically challenging, but emotionally and psychologically challenging as well. The people who work at Puah handle their clients in such a manner that they feel they are part of a safe, loving and supportive family. The Rabbis and other staff members at Puah Institute are so passionate and genuine in all that they do- it is a pleasure to volunteer at Puah!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Working in their office. Thank G-d I have not needed their help personally, although I know many couples who do need this type of help.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Give them more money! They need it desperately!

I volunteered at Puah recently since I had some free time and was amazed with what I saw! The staff there dedicate their lives to helping others that they don't even know! Sooo much time and effort they happily donate to a cause they all firmly believe in. I personally believe they feel blessed and rewarded to be in the position to help those who are in need of their multitude of services. They really help take away some of the pain and doubts from what is a very painful and humbling experience. I would definitely recommend calling them if you are in need of their wonderful services.

בס"ד שלום רב הייתי בקשר עם המכון פעמים רבות לשאלות הלכתיות, ותמיד נעניתי בסבלנות ואריכות. לפני כ-3 שנים בהריוני עם תאומים שיהיו בריאים,סייע לי המכון רבות עם שאלות הלכתיות ורפואיות שונות שהיו לי, הכוונה לרופא מומחה באופן פרטי עם סיוע כלכלי של המכון, ולא פחות חשוב- הרבה תמיכה רגשית ועידוד. גם כשבישרתי להם על הלידה הרגשתי שבאמת שמחים איתי. הייתי אז בקשר עם טובה מהמכון, שהיתה מעל לכל ציפיה. מקסימה. אני מדריכה כלות לפני חתונתן, ונותנת להן תמיד את הטלפון של המכון, אם יש שאלות כלשהן בהלכות טהרת המשפחה, הריונות וכד', אני יודעת שזו צידה לדרך חשובה שיש ביכולתי להעניק לזוג הצעיר.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

הקשר היה חם ואמיתי

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

אנשים מדהימים. תורמים מזמנם בלי גבול. טובה המזכירה סייעה לי רבות במאור פנים אמיתי שיכולתי לחוש דרך הטלפון

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

להמשיך לסייע לאנשים ולהגדיל את מערך הסיוע.

Ways to make it better...

היו עוד רבנים משיבים ועוד קווי טלפון כי תמיד עמוס וקשה לתפוס אותם, מרוב עבודה שיש להם

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

I was introduced to Puah due to my close proximity to some of the clinics they work with. Since starting I have been impressed with their sensitivity and heartfelt wish to help couples struggling through infertility. The pain of having no children is truly one of the toughest challenges life can throw your way. Compassion is not what is needed, but real hope and real assistance, which is what Puah offers. One time I witnessed as they helped a bride freeze her eggs before she got married and started chemotherapy. Her chances of having her own baby and being able to raise the child was instrumental in giving her courage to fight for her life. That strength to carry on with dignity and security that they are doing all they can, to become another link in the chain of life is amazing to see in the eyes of new parents.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

warm and caring. They took their responsibilities to the patient seriously and worked with the labs to give the patients the best experience/chances possible.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Help thousands of couples realize the dream of being parents

I am a volunteer for the past four and a half years for Puah. I feel good knowing that I can make a mother and father to be feel secured with our organization when providing them with supervision during their treatments in the lab. It is rewarding to know that I am helping these couples become future parents.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the good feeling of the security that the couple experiences by having someone there during their treatment to supervise their identity.
