Association for AT Disease

Ohr Meir & Bracha -The Terror Victims Support Center
Ohr Meir & Bracha help meet the needs of victims of terror and their families. Terror attacks destroy the lives not only of those who perish but also those who survive. Many victims may not receive help because their injuries are deemed insufficient to be recognised as medical disabilities or because they are still in the process of being assessed for disability. Ohr Meir & Bracha gives immediate assistance whenever possible.
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. Neurological disorders, severe illness and developmental problems in childhood present major challenges in the lives of all concerned. The Malki Foundation’s work focuses on providing specialized equipment and home-based therapies. The overall goal of TMF is to support families who wish to care for their special-needs child at home, rather than to institutionalise these children.
