Herzog Hospital’s Ethiopian Nurse’s Aide Project

Geoffrey —  April 27, 2015

Herzog Hospital is one of many Israeli hospitals on our approved list and we are proud of Herzog Hospital’s Ethiopian nurse’s aide training program. PEF has been involved with funding this project from its inception and we are gratified that it has been recently featured in the Israeli media.

In collaboration with Israel’s Ministry of Industry, Trade and Labor, Herzog Hospital has developed an employment-track certification program to train Ethiopian immigrants to become nurses’ aides. Sixteen groups of students have completed the four month empowerment course. To date, 294 immigrants, mostly women, have graduated the course, and 80 are now employed at Herzog. The Hospital has helped the other graduates to find employment at other facilities throughout Israel closer to their homes. Additional classes are planned for the coming year to accommodate an ever-increasing number of applications Individual courses have been supported by the Glencore Foundation and P.E.F., as well as by other generous donors
