Charities by Category: Deaf / Blind
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
One in five people in the UK faces a diagnosis of disability and someone goes blind every hour, and Jewish Blind & Disabled is the only charity in the Jewish community dedicated to enabling people in this position, from the age of eighteen upwards, to live independently with the dignity and choice that are so easy for others to take for granted. This is not only through their specially designed developments of state-of-the-art mobility apartments with 24/7 support from their own resident house managers, but also through their new Independent Living Advisory Service for those living out in the wider community.
As an independent charity that does not receive any government funding, Jewish Blind & Disabled is very grateful for your support.
Jewish Child’s Day has been providing support for disabled, neglected, abused and underprivileged Jewish children in the UK, Israel and worldwide for 70 years.
It provides the tangible items required – wheelchairs, life-saving medical equipment, hearing stimulus and special educational materials to name but a few. Jewish Child’s Day also ensures that Jewish children receive the bare essentials such as food and clothing.
Relying entirely on the generosity of the community and receiving neither government nor statutory funding, Jewish Child’s Day grants provide Jewish children throughout the world the chance to make a better life for themselves.
