He said ‘I was very pleased to be able to support such an important humanitarian initiative organised by the Covid Crisis Rescue Foundation, we see such challenges facing people in far parts of the world at the moment. Here’s something we can do on our own door step to help others from afar cope with the pandemic.’ The United Synagogue’s Chesed department gave a large amount of clothing for those coming to be vaccinated. Kosher Food was available for all. Toiletry goodie bags, were organised by the Covid Crisis Rescue Foundation, tents were provided by the London Fire Brigade. The Drive was in collaboration with The Practice @188 Surgery in Golders Green, Dr John Bentley of the surgery was on hand to help administer the vaccinations.
Patients not only got their Covid Vaccinations, but other routine vaccinations they may not have had, and a health check by expert cardiology nurses and GPs.
I’m amazed how Dr Raymond, Director of the Foundation, has helped to ensure so much has been achieved’ Rabbi Coten commented.
