How do we help?
We assist 35 daycare centers, where more than 1000 children spend many hours a day. In addition, we also have our activities center and theraputic center.
We also ensure that each daycare center we adopt is adequately equipped and institute proper safety measures. This includes providing the necessary medical care, food provisions, a supply of hygiene products and diapers, the installation of air-conditioners, washing machines and more. The volunteers give the children the personal attention they crave, make sure that medical and dental treatments are administered if necessary, and when needed, they work together with the parents to serve the child's best interests.
We have many additional initiatives, including offering the children: after-school activities; day-trips; birthday parties; celebrations of Jewish and Christian holidays; movies and performances; and special-education and enrichment classes. Elifelet's volunteers have become a surrogate family for the children at the afternoon clubs, and they help serve as a buffer for the parents in their attempts to fit in with Israeli society.
How can you help?
Donations are always welcome. Volunteers are needed to: work with the children; renovate dilapidated or hazardous apartments; perform various types of repair work; drive children to medical treatments; or transport food and equipment. We also invite groups of interested parties to visit us and learn about our work.
