Dental Volunteers for Israel (DVI) operates a free dental clinic in Jerusalem for disadvantaged children and youth-at-risk. Children treated at the clinic range from 4 to 26 years old and come from all the diverse backgrounds represented in Jerusalem, including Ethiopian, Palestinian, Ultra-Orthodox and Secular Jewish Israeli children and youth. The children receive all the necessary preventative and restorative dentistry which they would not otherwise be able to afford. DVI never requests payment for any treatment. Mrs. Trudi Birger, a Holocaust survivor, who saw children’s care as her goal in life, established DVI in 1980. The clinic is operated by dentists from around the world who volunteer for periods of 1 – 2 weeks. D.V.I. treats some 50 poor children per day, most of whom are arriving for the first time in their life to a dentist, and some are even in their teens. They receive their first toothbrush and learn how to keep their teeth healthy throughout their lifetime. Dental Volunteers for Israel is proud to be a unique organization providing approx. 1,000 free treatments monthly.

Gift of Life strives to increase the representation of Jewish donors in the registry in order to overcome the devastating effects of the Holocaust, which severed bloodlines and made the donor search particularly difficult for Jewish patients needing transplants.
