ALYN Hospital, Israel’s ONLY comprehensive paediatric and adolescent rehabilitation centre, is recognized as one of the world’s leading specialists in the active and intensive rehabilitation of physically challenged children and young adults.
ALYN treats patients regardless of religious or ethnic background who suffer from a wide range of congenital and acquired conditions. More than 3,500 children, including some from abroad, are treated at ALYN Hospital every year. The ultimate aim of ALYN Hospital’s multidisciplinary staff is to rehabilitate the youngsters in its care and to return them to their families and to the community as quickly as possible having helped them achieve the highest possible levels of function, mobility and independence.
The Israel Guide Dog Centre was established in 1991 to provide trained guide dogs for anyone who is blind or has vision-loss and produces over 30 life-changing partnerships every year. The unique bond between dog and partner brings companionship, confidence and ultimately independence for the partner, helping them to cope with day-to-day activities, employment, education, social events and travel.
In addition to this we are now contracted by the Israel Ministry of Defence to provide specially-trained service dogs for IDF veterans suffering from the debilitating effects of post-traumatic stress disorder. And we also enable children with autism-related issues to have a higher quality of life by providing them with emotional support dogs, helping them to engage with the world around them.
We provide all our services free of charge but we could not do this without charitable donations from donors in Israel and around the world. Please help us to continue our vital work.

Most of us will eventually face the trauma of hearing loss, or already have a loved one who is.
JDA enables people living with deafness to cope with whatever challenges life brings – as no other organisation can.
With your help we can:
• Support families – from the devastating diagnosis of their baby’s deafness – giving a new generation of deaf children the very best start in life and enabling them to fulfil their potential and lead the amazing lives they deserve
• Rescue older people living in care homes from isolation and loneliness by giving them the hearing support and equipment they need to chat with the people around them, laugh, join in activities and enjoy their final years
• Give lifelong care and support to vulnerable deaf and deafblind people
• Help more people to adapt to traumatic changes as they lose their hearing.
We receive no statutory funding and depend on legacies and donations to provide a lifeline for the growing numbers of people who need specialist help – in the Jewish community and beyond.
Please remember JDA in your Will – just 1% of your residuary estate will help us ensure all deaf people get the very best out of life.
