Volunteers

The association’s volunteers assist in organizing and carrying out major events throughout the year, such as camps, trips, parties and more.

The volunteers are engaged in activities that include logistical support, management, production, security, medicine, etc.

 

Instructors - Volunteers

The association is blessed with thousands of volunteers from the religious zionist movement, ages 17-25, from across the country. All year round they are engaged in instructing, guiding and giving mental and physical support to the children.

The ongoing dialogue between healthy young volunteers and their young and disabled children is very important for the children's quality of life, and creates an encounter with a social and ethical resilience, which strengthens all parties.

The volunteers join the children in all the activities and keep in close contact with them throughout the year, whether at their homes, schools and during theie hospital stay.

 

About us

The backbone of the association relies on hundreds of volunteers who fit into the daily aid for the sick and disabled in Israel.
