The Shira Pransky Project (Organization)

From All Rights (Kol-Zchut) (www.kolzchut.org.il)

Introduction:


The Shira Pransky Project, part of AACI - Association of Americans and Canadians in Israel, was formed for the purpose of relieving English speaking immigrants of the hardships associated with navigating the healthcare system in Israel. We promote accessible rights, benefits and support for English speaking medical patients in Israel through education and advocacy.

Healthcare can be intimidating and confusing, especially in times of personal health crisis. This is particularly true for immigrants, who struggle more in navigating unfamiliar bureaucracy and language barriers. English speakers in Israel face even further challenges unique to their community.

The Shira Pransky Project strives to assist health and social service organizations reach English-speakers with their support. By simplifying, translating and publicizing practical information, we increase awareness of the relief that is available and help make it accessible.
