I just figured I'd let people know about a a good group which helps out forgotten people, in Israel and elsewhere:
It is an amazing story- with just over one full-time equivalent staff person, Jewish Healthcare International (JHI) volunteer healthcare professionals make a world of difference in improving the healthcare available for at-risk, disenfranchised individuals in the former Soviet Union, Eastern Europe, Israel and the United States. JHI is a non-sectarian, not-for-profit coalition of volunteer healthcare professionals who provide hands-on training, consultations, public health seminars and donations of medical goods and pharmaceuticals for healthcare providers and the community at large in the sites served. As a result, local professionals can substantially improve the quality of healthcare provided to thousands of people in their communities, and enable them to lead healthier, more productive lives.
