Friends of Ziv, Sound Nightclub Hold Humanitarian Event For Venezuelan Refugees

Share This Press Release

Friends of Ziv, Sound Nightclub, and Ziv Medical Center announce a humanitarian campaign: Ziv for Venezuelan Refugees to provide vaccines, medicines, and teams of experienced Israeli doctors to support hospitals and health-care personnel in countries bordering Venezuela.

Friends of Ziv Medical Center, Sound Nightclub in Hollywood, and Ziv Medical Center announce their humanitarian campaign: “Ziv for Venezuelan Refugees” to provide vaccines, medicines, and send teams of experienced Israeli doctors to support hospitals and health-care personnel in countries bordering Venezuela that are providing medical assistance to Venezuelan refugees.

Every week, thousands of Venezuelans cross Venezuela’s borders seeking medical attention and medicines that are not available in their country. The Brazilian health system has been overwhelmed by the demand of so many people with many health problems.

Due to the lack of vaccinations in Venezuela, a series of epidemics are rampant in the country and many of the people seeking help have these diseases. The most widespread is measles, with several thousand cases so far, causing at least 12 deaths.

Israel’s Ziv Medical Center is sending a team of doctors from to Brazil’s Northern Province, near the border with Venezuela.

Ziv’s doctors have the expertise to tackle the situation and bring relief and support, even if temporarily, to their Brazilian counterparts.

On Wednesday, February 6, 2019, Friends of Ziv Medical Center will hold a fundraiser in support of its ‘Helping the Venezuelan Refugees Campaign.’

Kobi Danan, Sound Nightclub owner, has donated the venue and several well-known DJs – who will dance the philanthropic, caring crowd off their feet – are donating their performance for an evening of music and fun.

For the sake of the plight of Venezuelans, the Ziv for Venezuelan Refugees campaign invites members of the public to participate.

Tickets are available for $27.00 at the door. Attendees must be 21 or older.

Sound Nightclub @ 1642 N Las Palmas Ave, Los Angeles, California 90028, p. 323-962-9000
