Impact

You don’t really get it until you hear it from the people themselves. Below are just some of the messages we have received over the years from volunteers, patients, and their families. There is nothing we can say that could possibly be more impactful.

"Each journey is an exciting human experience that enriches us and gives perspective and proportions to our own life events."

"Ever since I joined the Road to Recovery and started driving Palestinian patients and their companions from the Erez checkpoint to Israeli hospitals, I feel I have been given a lifelong gift. Each journey is part of a human chain, and we are the links in that chain that help people in distress. Each journey is an exciting human experience that enriches us and gives perspective and proportions to our own life events. I believe that through rides we are adding another layer and strengthening the foundation for a life of hope, peace and cooperation with our Palestinian neighbors."

"You, your friends at Road to Recovery, and all the beautiful people at Rambam Hospital saved my life twice. The first time, from cancer. The second time, from being a close-minded fanatic.”

“I never had the chance to tell you openly that I think you’re doing the most amazing thing ever. You, your friends at Road to Recovery, and all the beautiful people at Rambam Hospital saved my life twice. The first time, from cancer. The second time, from being a close-minded fanatic. Like all Palestinians, I think I was brainwashed to hate everyone, especially Jews. What you are doing is one of the reasons why I now hope for peace and do whatever I can from my place as a teacher to make more people hope and seek peace, too. Thank you so much.”
