THE MALKI FOUNDATION

Keren Malki's work is based around the idea that no place is better for a child with special needs than that child's own home. Helping to enable that to happen is what drives our activities, day after day.

The challenges facing a family with a seriously disabled child are not simple. Neurological disorders, severe illness and developmental problems in childhood change the lives of all concerned: the child, the parents, the siblings and - in some ways - the society around them.

Experience shows that such families are rarely in a position to stand up to these challenges without sustained, targeted help.

The Yeshiva is committed to providing support services to IDF soldiers.  Many young soldiers in Israel are away from their families for the first time.  The Yeshiva wants to act as an extended family to young soldiers where they feel welcome and "at home".  Some soldiers are alienated from their families because of their decision to join the IDF. Others come from situations of extreme poverty and send all of their income back to the family. These soldiers may lack adequate clothing and funds for food and transportation.  All IDF soldiers are welcome to participate in Yeshiva programs and activities.

to them, both now and in the future.

FOUNDER & CHAIRPERSON

ISRAEL ASSOCIATION FOR THE CHILD

The Israel Association for Child Protection (ELI) is recognized by the Government of Israel and other human service agencies as the only organization in Israel that deals specifically and exclusively with all of the various aspects of child abuse. The organization works tirelessly to increase awareness of the problem by educating the public at large, by training professionals, by lobbying policy decision makers, and by providing vital information to potential victims and parents -- all to enhance ELI's ability to provide assistance.

 

ELI's staff of professionals and specially trained volunteers are unique to their approach, offering a single-point-of-entry to comprehensive services. Families receive therapy, legal counseling, shelter and whatever other support services are needed without having to go from agency to agency. Thus, ELI complements other human service agencies in Israel by providing a totally coordinated spectrum of services, not only to children who have been abused or neglected, but also to adults who were childhood victims of abuse and to abusive parents who need help to overcome their problem. Individual, group and family therapy sessions are offered throughout Israel.
