Tsav Ha-shaa: state program and assistance to Ukrainian refugees in Israel
Israel continues to provide aid to refugees. However, the country's government changed the rules for the stay of Ukrainians in Israel. Learn more about the changes and how to get help under the state Tsav Ha-shaa program
Today, thousands of Ukrainians have to be far from home because of the brutal war in Ukraine. Dozens of countries reached out to help Ukrainian refugees and accepted them. Currently, there are many special programs operating around the world that financially and humanitarianly help immigrants and stimulate adaptation to life in a new country.
Israel does not stand aside and actively helps Ukrainians. For a long time, the "Tsav Ha-shaa" program has been operating in the country, which provides a number of services to people who fled the war. As part of this program, a state aid center for refugees from Ukraine was opened in Israel.
The "Tsav Has-haa" program: what assistance do Ukrainians receive in the state center
Ukrainians who are currently in Israel because of the war have official tourist status. But at the same time, a special state program called "Tsav Ha-shaa" applies to each person. Back in March, as part of this program, a state aid center for refugees from Ukraine was opened in Israel, where you can get help and advice on medicine, insurance and temporary housing. Service in the center is provided in three languages: Ukrainian, russian and Hebrew.
Pay attention! Refugees over the age of 60 and people with disabilities can obtain health insurance in Israel. Also, Ukrainians can receive free first and emergency aid at medical centers of the "Terem" network throughout the country.
