ALEH believes that every child, regardless of the severity of the physical or cognitive disability, has the right to benefit from the best available care in order to reach his or her fullest potential.
Today, over 650 children with cognitive and physical disabilities receive state-of-the-art medical, educational and rehabilitative care in ALEH’s four facilities. In addition, ALEH provides thousands of outpatient treatments annually. Without ALEH, many of these children would be forced to spend their lives in hospitals, with no opportunities for rehabilitation, education, and the love and warmth of a home.
Thanks to ALEH, these children are able to attend school, participate in vocational programs and enjoy activities such as swimming at the beach or touring the countryside. In its efforts to change common attitudes and create a more caring and inclusive society in Israel, ALEH has developed numerous Tikkun Olam programs involving families, school children and university students, the IDF, and hundreds of volunteers both in Israel and abroad.
We believe that a strong society is judged by the way it cares for its most vulnerable members. Please join us in our mission to raise the bar for this and all future generations.
