‘REFRESH’ AT THE GERIATRIC DEPARTMENT IN THE PORIYA HOSPITAL, TIBERIAS

‘REFRESH’ AT THE GERIATRIC DEPARTMENT IN THE PORIYA HOSPITAL, TIBERIAS

Galila supports a social venture for the medical students working at the Poriya hospital, located near the town of Tiberius in the Eastern Galilee region. In partnership with the Jewish Agency and the Ministry for Development of the Galilee & Negev, this initiative provides these medical students with a scholarship to help cover their academic expenses in addition to a sum with which they can initiate and operate a social program for the community.

One of the medical students decided to improve the physical conditions and appearance in the hospital’s geriatric department. With Galila’s funding assistance and together with a group of student-friends, they painted and refreshed the dull and depressing appearance in the department and created a bright, inviting space for the elderly and frail that use this facility of a daily basis.  Should you visit this hospital, make sure you see the newly-decorated Geriatric wing that has changed its appearance thanks to the initiative of a single medical student.
