Jerusalem Free Clinic for orphans and destitute was founded in Wehdat Camp because most people there don’t have basic health coverage insurance at all, they not even have covered for emergency cases. The Free Clinic is in the most poverty area in Jordan, the Wehdat Camp where over half a million of Palestinian refugee lives there Therefore, the Jerusalem Free Clinic was established to serve the health needs of this community. The clinic has three doctors, a nurse, a receptionist and a maintenance man. The staff, including the doctors, were all born and raised in the Al-Wehdat Camp. Our staff has interested behavior toward the patients with high quality, dignified and respectful care to all who pass through our doors is something that makes us very proud.
Our clinic does offer emergency services and general medical services for now. However, not all medicines are available, so we do need a wider range of medicines. We treat all categories of patients, including patients who have special needs (children, women and the elderly). But we don’t have specialists for the women and children. A gynaecologist (OB-GYN) and a paediatrician are needed very much at this time. We offer home visits to the elderly and to those who are very sick and cannot come to the clinic. We bring our services to them at home, and this includes delivery of free-of-charge medicines. But, people who have developed severe chronic health problems may need medications for extended periods of time. These patients need both special care as well as extended access to the proper medicine. all our service including medicine is completely free .
We have been open for over a year already and have provided nearly twenty thousand patient treatments. We want to increase the number of patients treated. In order to provide better services, we need help to fund the following:
1) Increase the size of our clinic's total floor space;
2) Hire a Gynaecologist and a Paediatrician;
3) Purchase more medicines.
We looking for someone to help us all the way through a fundraising camping on gofundme and other similar websites , help with the text , marketing the campaign and other needs to make it a successful
