“Lemeanchem” opened a hotline to help repatriates from Ukraine

The non-profit organization “Lemeanchem” (“For you”), with the support of the Euro-Asian Jewish Congress (EAJC), has opened a special telephone helpline for Jews from Ukraine who are applying for the status of repatriates in Israel. The hotline is designed to facilitate bureaucratic procedures when registering at medical institutions for immediate care.

Hotline phone is *6884. Russian-speaking doctors and volunteers will help those who have already arrived in Israel, but have not yet received an id, navigate in the field of health insurance and related services.

Since February 24, due to the war in Ukraine, several thousand Jews came to Israel. Only last week, hundreds of refugees have arrived in the Jewish state, and more are expected in the coming days. These people found themselves in a difficult situation: their status has not yet been determined, but some of them may be in dire need of medical care. Among the evacuees are children of the Odessa Jewish orphanage. In addition, these days the 2nd World War veterans are being evacuated from Kyiv.
