The Friends of Soroka assists in the development of the hospital and is essential in ensuring that its vital needs are met. It provides moral support, social assistance, and organizational and budgetary help throughout the hospital, contributing to the wellbeing of the Negev community.

The first public event held by the Friends took place in early 1988, and focused on the Cardiology Institute. Since then, it has held annual events for the benefit of Soroka.

The entire proceeds of each year's event are dedicated to a particular designated unit within the medical center.

 

Members of the Friends of Soroka perform a variety of tasks and take on many challenges, all of which aim to ensure that Soroka offers professional medical services of the highest standards to the citizens of the Negev and to the IDF soldiers who serve in the South of Israel and on the southern front.

All of this work is done on a completely voluntary basis. Since the creation of the

Friends of Soroka, the generous donations and support of its members and donors have enabled it to purchase essential equipment and fund vital projects for the hospital, helping to bridge the gap between the level of healthcare in the center of Israel and that in the South.

The Friends works to deepen the connection between the local community and the hospital and to raise awareness among Israelis of Soroka Medical Center’s status as a world-class hospital and a strategic asset in times of peace and war alike.
