Improving life quality for the disabled and sick and their families.
Mentoring project for children with disabilities. Current activity of 1,000 young volunteers who are improving the life quality of the disabled and sick children.
Clubs – The organization operates eight clubs across Israel, five of which are located in the periphery - Ashdod, Ashkelon, Beer-Sheba, Kiryat Gat and Kiryat Shmona, as well as in Jerusalem and Modi'in.
The club is operated two to three times a week in the afternoons after school.
The number of children in each group is ranged between 15 and 20 children.
Summer Camp – the summer camp operated by Kav Lachayim is the year’s highlight for the disabled children.
During six days at the camp, the children enjoy a variety of activities and attractions that are tailored to their age and limitations.
For parents, this week is an opportunity to put more time taking care of the other children at home and rest a little from the daily exhausting care of the disabled child.
Bar / Bat Mitzvah - every year we celebrate bar and bat mitzvahs for 20 disabled and sick children, who have not got to celebrate yet, some due to lengthy hospitalizations and some do to the difficulties the family face with, caring the disabled child.
Since every disabled has child the right to celebrate just like everyone else, the bar mitzvah takes place in all its glory, along with family and friends.
