The Road to Recovery was established by Yuval Roth in 2010.
Road to Recovery is an organization of thousands of Israeli volunteers, driving Palestinians requiring treatment – mostly children – from crossings between Israel and the Palestinian Authority to hospitals in Israel. Road to Recovery is apolitical and motivated solely by humanitarian interests. We believe that our assistance, besides being motivated by compassion, will generate good will, deepen our connection and contribute to peace between our peoples.
Additional goals include the acquisition of medical equipment for those in need and organizing special recreational days for patients and their families.
The total distance travelled by our volunteers in 2020 was about 1,155,000 km, encompassing nearly 10,000 trips and catering to 15,000 patients, mostly children.
For further details of last year’s activity summary, please refer to the 2020 annual report.
I have been a part of the organization since its inception and serve in several voluntary function, as well, as having the honour of driving children and families to hospital. In 2022-2023 I served as the Chairman of the Board.
I have also been photographing its various events.
