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.

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 face 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 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.

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.
