25 פעוטות וילדים אשר הוצאו מבתיהם ע"י שירותי הרווחה בשל הזנחה והתעללות יגיעו לביתם החדש באור שלום בחודש הבא.

הם יגיעו למשפחת אומנה או למעון משפחתי אשר יקלטו אותם כשהם במצב משברי. הם יגיעו עם ציוד מועט, או ללא ציוד כלל, בנסיבות טראומטיות ובמצב רגשי שביר מאד. רבים מהם יגיעו כשרק בגד לגופם. עלות הציוד הבסיסי הנדרש לילד כדי להתחיל את חייו החדשים אצלנו הינה 500$. אנא עזרו להם.

Orr Shalom for Israel's Children-at-Risk

 
 


Orr Shalom rescues and cares for Israel’s children who have been removed from their homes by the social welfare services, having suffered severe abuse and/or neglect, or because they have been abandoned by their parents or suffered a familial tragedy.

We care for 1,300 children from birth to 18+ years from all sectors of Israeli society, in a variety of frameworks including foster care (regular, therapeutic and emergency), family group homes, and closed intensive therapeutic homes.

 
     
 
 

Give these children a new start

 
 

Children arrive at Orr Shalom from highly traumatic situations, with little or no personal possessions from home. Help alleviate their anguish and their transition to their new lives.

Ella's story

 
 

This year, Ella (name changed) arrived in one of Orr Shalom's Family Group Homes aged eight. She had been found by neighbors, wandering without
clothes on the street in the cold, having been forced out of her home as punishment. Police immediately uncovered a background of abuse within her home, as well as extreme neglect of her basic needs.

Ella arrived at our home severely shaken and traumatized, and with literally no possessions - having been given spare clothes to wear at the police station. The start-up pack that Ella received, with clothes, toiletries, linen, night wear etc, gave her some comfort and security, and enabled her to function practically during the initial period of her stay in the home.
