Mikki lives in fear of the alcohol-induced abuse that has become a regular feature of his everyday life. Living in a small town near Ashdod, Mikki has no support network and no-one to turn to when his life becomes unbearable. Jewish Child's Day is working with its partners to identify these children at risk and work to make them safe and give them the one thing they want more than anything else. ..a childhood.

These activities are hugely rewarding and positively contribute to the physical, social, intellectual and emotional development of children with special needs - helping them to build strength, confidence and self-esteem.
The message kids take away from these activities is:
I CAN! – I can participate, I can contribute, I can achieve
