History: The Bikur Cholim Ladies Association was established 37 years ago by Mrs. Rivka Muller and Rebetzin Y. Katz with the purpose of bringing comfort and easing the anxiety and pain of those going through a crisis. What was once a small fledgling group of volunteers has evolved into a multifaceted organization which it is today. BCLA has expanded to meet the countless needs of our growing Montreal community. BCLA, which started as a two-man operation out of a dining room and kitchen table, has catapulted into a multidimensional operation with a staff off 25 coordinators and hundreds of volunteers, who strive relentlessly to ease the often-overwhelming burdens suffered by the patients and their families in difficult times. Over the last three decades, the organization has metamorphosed into a comprehensive provider of a full range of social and supportive health services to families in the community who are in crisis or facing financial, health, or other medical challenges.
Our Goal: $100,000
