Puah is renowned for its professional service for everybody, for all of Klal Israel, without making any difference between people. Their service is very devoted and efforts to help people are made also after official office hours. They consult with the highest level professional medical staff and make you feel they emphathise with your specific situation. Puah is definitely an outstanding NGO which deserves every support and appreciation.

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

Exceptional, being available at any time of the day and working without hours. Knowledgeable in many halachic fields and open to all different kinds of population.

Hi, Thanks G-d I never had to use this organization, BUT, I could call them (I called the head of this organization) from Switzerland, just the get an answer for medical question. It was very urgent for me, and it was after 1am in the morning, but I got my answer. Since then, eventhough i am connected to many non profits organizations, I tried to be involved in what they do, and donate for them. And why? because they help, and responds to any question, as serious, as it was the 1 Million question, and will assist you freely not connected to your religious background. A lot of kids, came healthy to this world , because of their help. As I mention before, they will assist you after the formal hours, and will try to find for the direct the person who needs the help to the right solution, and in a very calm way. In the medical field, they organized many Seminars with the most specialyst Dr.s from all over the world, and they are apreciated as well by Professors from all over the world. I wish them to grow up, and to assist more people, and make them happy. Good luck!

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

While pregnancy we got an US that made us worried about. We got directed to a Proffesors, who could helped us, after they calmed us down with the right diagnostic.

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

1) They don't talk about money when you ask for service 2) They feel you, like it was thier own problems 3) The people who are in charged to responds are very knowlegdable and have Multidisziplinar education

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

Oh, they could hire more workers, and educate them in the fields, so they could manage help more people, and faster. They could hire directly proffessors, who could help directly from their office, in special hours. They could manage use more Net Tech

" IN a community very insular and private as ours is, it is a formidable task to be sensitive enough, medically well connected enough, knowledgeable enough in Jewish Law and its intricacies, and trained in human psychology enough, to be able to reach out and be of assistance . Yet Puah seems to have mastered the skills and necessary factors to serve a segment of the Jewish Community that might otherwise be forced to live with the sadness of childlessness. With much wisdom and kindness couples are treated with the utmost dignity, and can have their hopes of being parents one day restored. Being part of a family where 2 of my siblings gave birth through IVF treatments, I appreciate what it means. Our community is blessed to have such dedicated , serious people devoted to bringing the latest technology "down to earth". - Show quoted text -
