Established in 1979 in response to a local tragedy, Bikur Cholim was founded to ensure that no person would have to battle the challenges of illness and disability on their own.
More than three decades since we were first established, our commitment to this ideal remains as principal as ever. Although there is not much that can be done to prevent illness, there is a lot that can be done to reduce the pain that accompanies it. Bikur Cholim’s longstanding trademarks of person centred services and attitudes of respect, dignity and sensitivity and our unstinting commitment to confidentiality have enabled us to meet the individual needs of each of our service users.
We recognise that we owe our achievements to the ongoing support and hard work of our trustees and staff team, and are immeasurably grateful to our donors and funders for their generosity.
