Created in 1991, the Israel Guide Dog Centre for the Blind was established to train and supply guide dogs to an increasing number of blind Israelis who were unable to obtain a dog from an English-speaking centre abroad. Hundreds of partnerships have now been created at our centre that is located not far from Rishon L’Zion at Beit Oved. Each partnership costs some 15,000 for the life long care of the guide dog, training and aftercare. A legacy or gift will help provide another pair of eyes to the growing number of blind persons who ‘look’ to us to help restore their independence and dignity.

Jewish Blind & Disabled (JBD)
Bittacy Hill, Mill Hill East
Jewish Blind & Disabled is the only charity dedicated to enabling people from the age of eighteen upwards, who have physical disabilities or impaired vision, to live independently with the dignity and choice that are so easy to take for granted.
One in five people in the UK faces a diagnosis of disability, with someone going blind every hour. Jewish Blind & Disabled restores their independence and hope for the future through their specially designed developments of state-of-the-art mobility apartments with resident house managers who are on site and on call round the clock, seven days a week.
As an independent charity that does not receive any government funding, Jewish Blind & Disabled is very grateful for your support.

Fact: almost everyone who reads this will be confronted with the trauma of hearing loss at some time in their lives – or most certainly have a loved one who will. Deafness can totally isolate people from family, friends and colleagues.
For over 60 years, JDA has provided professional, personalised care and support for everyone with a hearing loss. We support families after the devastating diagnosis of their newborn baby’s deafness; provide invaluable support services to help people of all ages adapt to traumatic changes as they lose their hearing, and give compassionate care to older Deaf and Deafblind people – who may have dementia and are vulnerable to abuse and cruelty – through daily life, illness, hospitalisation, bereavement and end-of-life care.
Malki Foundation uniquely supports thousands of Israeli families who care at home for a child with severe disabilities. We provide them with the means to obtain paramedical therapy sessions (physical, occupational, speech, hydrotherapy, and horse-riding) when Israel’s government-mandated safety net runs out or when, for bureaucratic reasons that no parent can accept, the system says no.
For families in Israel’s peripheral communities where therapists are scarce, our supervised therapists travel directly to the child’s home. Malki Foundation also provides home-care equipment enabling families to keep a child with severe special needs at home rather than succumb to institutionalization for lack of realistic alternatives.
Founded in 2001 by parents who understand the need, we are passionate, efficient, and effective.

Since 1971, on a completely voluntary basis, the Committee has purchased medical equipment for many hospitals in Israel, including the Rambam Medical Centre in Haifa and the Western Galilee Hospital in Nahariya. Wonderful hospitals offering the very best in medical care and expertise.
Commemorative plaques can be affixed to equipment and dedication ceremonies arranged.
Why not celebrate that special simcha by asking friends and family to dedicate their gifts for the purchase of life-saving medical equipment and also to help the disabled to regain their mobility, confidence in their lives and self esteem?
Bequests truly welcomed and all donations appreciated and acknowledged.
