About Zimra

Zimra was established about 30 years ago in order to help mental health patients in Israel. Working with 18 governmental hospitals throughout Israel, Zimra is run solely by volunteers who witnessed the distress of mental health patients and realized that they needed help.

Zimra has been repeatedly commended over the years by doctors and mental health professionals in these hospitals for the wonderful work and support that it provides.

Most mental health patients were, in the past, normal people living a normal way of life, who became ill with mental illnesses and were hospitalized for medical treatment. Their mental difficulties, in addition to the loneliness and isolation from their families and loved ones, causes them extreme pain and distress. Both mental patients who have been hospitalized and mental patients, who live at home and have to cope with daily routines, suffer everyday difficulties. Many suffer, in addition to their mental illness, also from depression, which worsens their situation and they feel helpless.

Thanks to Zimra’s support many mental health patients have improved the situation and their quality of life. We have put a smile on many faces … and that is worth all our efforts!!

Why is Zimra unique?

Zimra is a nonprofit organization run by volunteers of many years, to bring a ray of light and give some hope to mental health patients and their families. Zimra is based mainly on donations from Israel and abroad and a strong spirit of volunteering.

Zimra is unique in its genuine giving that is found nowhere else and upholds a policy of "if we do not keep up our work, no one else will do it". Zimra’s ability to continue providing assistance is dependent on your donations.

Each and every donation received by Zimra is used entirely for specific projects intended to help mental health patients. As all donations are earmarked, we have close follow-up on the distribution of funds and on the success of each monetary allocation.

Help us continue providing vital assistance to mental health patients in Israel. Your donation is their ability to survive another day. Come and be a part of our endeavors!!!

Zimra is worthy of your help and your generous donation.
