FRIEND SHIPS UNLIMITED - aka Park West Children's Fund

Current Mission

Field Clinic - Camp Ichay On the Israel/Syria borderFIELD CLINIC - Camp Ichay On the Israel/Syria border

Camp Ichay - Doctors NeededFriend Ships has established a medical field clinic and humanitarian base on the border between Israel and Syria to care for Syrian war victims.

The camp is located in the Golan Heights, in an area of about 80,000 people. Many have moved to this area for safety, having been driven from their homes. Others are residents who have had access to only extremely limited medical care. The camp is located in the demilitarized zone on the border between Syria and Israel. We offer services you would find at a family clinic.

To help us operate Camp Ichay:

We continue to take donations of new underwear and warm socks, shoes, warm coats, blankets and linens at Port Mercy- 1019 N. First Avenue, Lake Charles, LA. 70601.

Friend Ships stands ready to respond when communities in the U.S. or in the Western Hemisphere are devastated by hurricanes, floods, earthquakes or other disasters. Once it is determined that our organization can make a significant contribution to help disaster victims, we will move a team into the area with the equipment required to provide food service, commodity distribution, house to house assistance and spiritual encouragement. If appropriate we may also provide search and rescue, sand-bagging, water purification, emergency broadcasting, pet rescue, medical services and pharmaceutical support, roof repair, house gutting and chain saw services.

Friend Ships rescues useable food that would otherwise be destroyed and distributes it to organizations and churches in the community who are assisting the poor, sick, elderly or homeless. To date, 65 million pounds of food has been collected and distributed. Not only is food given to those in need, but this program provides prayer and a personal touch that does even more to help and encourage those who are going through difficult times.
Friend Ships Medical Missions provides services and medicine to people who are otherwise without access to this care. At present, our team is working in a devastated, war-torn area of the Middle East to provide medical treatment and food service to people who have no other resources.
