Road to Recovery is an organization of thousands of Israeli volunteers, driving Palestinians requiring treatment – mostly children – from crossings between Israel and the Palestinian Authority to hospitals in Israel. Road to Recovery is apolitical and motivated solely by humanitarian interests. We believe that our assistance, besides being motivated by compassion, will generate good will, deepen our connection and contribute to peace between our peoples.
Additional goals include the acquisition of medical equipment for those in need and organizing special recreational days for patients and their families.
The total distance travelled by our volunteers in 2018 was about 1,277,000 km, encompassing 10,100 trips and catering to 20,500 patients, mostly children. For further details of last year’s activity summary, please refer to the 2019 annual report.

Today, amid one of the most deeply-rooted political and cultural conflicts, Road to Recovery is bridging the divide with an initiative of hope. Our organization is a nonprofit organization of volunteers who believe that peace among Israelis and Palestinians can only come about through engagement and personal involvement, placing humanity before politics.
The deep-seated barriers of distrust that exist between Palestinian and Israeli societies only serve to perpetuate the conflict. Our volunteers seek to break down these barriers on a personal level, transporting Palestinian patients on round-trips from the West Bank and Gaza to hospitals throughout Israel for treatment, hospitalization and check-ups.
