Medical Program

JDC’s medical program, directed by Dr. Hodes, continues to provide life-altering treatment to young people, particularly patients suffering from spinal deformities and those who need heart surgery or treatment for Hodgkin’s disease.

Additional information

JDC began working in Ethiopia in 1983, striving to advance the health and well being of those living in the Gondar region. Providing critical services, including medical care under the supervision of Dr. Rick Hodes, JDC’s Medical Director in Ethiopia for more than two decades, JDC met the needs—both in Gondar and in Addis Ababa—of the successive waves of Ethiopians who have immigrated to Israel over the past 30 years.
