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.
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. Keren Malki’s work focuses on providing specialized equipment and home-based therapies. The overall goal of Keren Malki is to support families who wish to care for their special-needs child at home, rather than to institutionalise these children.
In Beit Shemesh (approx. 85,000 inhabitants) and the surrounding area there is a diverse population encompassing new immigrants from Ethiopia and Caucasia (Kazakhstan), single parent families, and a veteran population – all these sectors have one thing in common – daily socio-economic distress.
This distress is manifest both in the difficulty of supplying basic needs such as, food, clothing and shelter, and socio-emotional needs – educational and employment gaps, lack of environmental and emotional confidence, exposure to various risk factors and the list goes on and on.
Lamitnadev’s aim is to redresses social, economic and educational inequities and to implement projects which will achieve these goals and enable the young people of these communities to acquire the necessary skills and knowledge to improve their situation.
