Friends of Yad Sarah UK

With Yad Sarah you can visit Israel

Yad Sarah now provides personalized services for tourists with special needs.

A “personal anchor” will coordinate your arrangements and stay in touch with you throughout your stay, to deal with every eventuality and provide solutions for problems and changes that may occur.

Advance notice is usually required for the services, all provided by volunteers. They include:

  • Equipping your hotel room to make your stay more comfortable
  • Borrowing medical /rehab equipment (from anyYad Sarah branch ountrywide).
  • Borrowing oxygen cylinders / concentrators.
  • Transportation to and from the airport (Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Haifa)
  • Inter-city and inner-city transportation – for sightseeing or other purpose.
  • Advice about easy access tourist sites.

And last of all – if, heaven forbid, something should happen to you while in Israel, it won’t take long for your host, hotel or guide to lead you to Yad Sarah for crutches, a wheelchair, a walker or a cane.

Whether you need assistance with transportation, equipment loans, or outfitting your hotel room with adaptive equipment, Yad Sarah can help you remain active and independent during your visit to Israel.
