The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation of Israel
The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation of Israel is a nonprofit organization dedicating to improving the health and quality of life of all CF patients living in Israel.
Founded in 1967 by parents of children diagnosed with CF, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation of Israel was established in order to create a support network for CF patients that would assist in the acquisition of medical equipment, offer psychological support and ensure adequate medical treatment. These were seen by the founders as measures that would increase the life expectancy of CF patients, improve their quality of life and enable them to live rich and full lives.
In order to achieve its goals, The CFFI established and operates six multi-disciplinary CF clinics in various hospitals throughout Israel which provide the only in-hospital comprehensive treatment of its kind for CF patients in Israel.
We offer families coping with CF support in purchasing essential medical equipment, accompaniment before and after transplant procedures, educational support and completion of learning curricula for children who miss school due to hospitalization, support workshops for patients and their families and financial assistance in purchasing medications, medical equipment and food supplement that are not covered by the health-care packages.
The CFFI is the is the only organization in Israel dedicated to improving the quality of life and well being of CF patients across all age groups. Our foundation also focuses on supporting CF patients from various minority groups within Israeli Society.
We welcome you to our website and hope you’ll take the time to get to know us a little better and maybe even assist us in our important mission.
